's review

it was ok
bookshelves: juvenile-childrens, boy-books, multicultural
Read in December, 2009

Although it was a tough topic (farmers striking and blockading bridges to raise coca, not as cocaine but as tea, and being forced by American money to not grow their crops), I never really rooted for them. The writing and the language was too general for me to feel that it was happening in Bolivia. I was connected to the general theme, but not the characters.

I don't know if I would recommend it because it was so general. If someone was interested in this topic, then maybe, but not to everyone.
