** spoiler alert ** TW: Slurs, violence, torture, drug and alcohol abuse.
This is Lyn Miller-Lachmann’s novel surrounding the life of Daniel, a Chilean refugee living in the United States after the capture of his father, a former journalist. As the novel progresses, Daniel’s father is freed, still suffering from the trauma he experienced in prison. Daniel must come to terms with his father’s abuse while struggling to adapt to life in the United States, and attempting to alleviate his fears that his father will again become a political prisoner. Although this novel involves dark themes, it is worthwhile for students to embark on an exploration of Chilean culture, and the horrors of the Chilean Civil War.
