Finding Seguridad-which means security or safety, is an authentic story of Ana and Emmanuel’s plight, from physical violence to finding faith in the midst of your battles. Allison’s writing draws the reader into the characters’ lives. I love how she presents what happens or affects a group of people in a way that opens my eyes to what they face on a daily basis that I don’t think or know about.

I love this series by Allison Garcia. Her characters are people you may know or see in your neighborhood, church, school - anywhere!

Her plot lines remind me of Upton Sinclair's novel "The Jungle". You root for the hero/heroine and hope for the best for them. With lots of societal and emotional problems to deal with, you're just not sure how things will get resolved.

She's done it again -- Garcia has written a great squeal for the Buscando Home series. She tackles so many issues and weaves them seamlessly throughout her different characters.

Timely, honest, and challenging in the best way. A mother fights to keep herself and her son from abuse. A couple questions everything they've been taught. A boy wrestles with guilt and doubt.

We can feel these emotions at the core of our humanity. These characters are very relatable.
