For starters, I would like to say "Thank You" to BookishFirst and Syracuse University Press for the opportunity to have received the ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) edition of this book.
I'll be blunt. If you are looking for "action" this isn't for you. But what the story brings to the pages makes up for it. It's a touching story that, unfortunately, too many people have lived, and died, through. You get so involved with the characters, you can't help but like some of them. There aren't really any slow parts and there are parts that are page turners. To me it was a good read. Getting away from the standard guns, gadgets, girls and guts themes did me some good. The only complaint I had while reading this story was it felt like I needed to go out and learn to read Spanish, since there are some sentences and phrases in Spanish. All in all it was a book worth reading.
