Magical realism, exploration of identity, LGBTQIA issues, brujaria! This book has got it ALL!

First and foremost this book is about self discovery, self acceptance, and the love that we accept from ourselves and I LOVED IT. Sams journey of acceptance and discovery as he realizes who is and the lies he has been telling himself is simply breathtaking.

Miel's journey as she slowly faces her greatest fears about who she is, where she's from, and what she's worth to herself and to others hurts to read because it resonates so deeply.

I think that this book is a worthwhile read for anyone who has ever felt like they've needed to grow into who they are. Beautiful book!
