Although the subject matter is important, I did not enjoy this book, and had difficulty completing it I was unable to connect with the character even though she is sharing the struggle of Cuba through her perspective I do think that memories are short, and society has forgotten how Castro treated the citizens of Cuba So for this reason, it does show what it was like living under Castro I'm not sure I would recommend this book for middle school I don't anticipate putting it on my 8th grade shelf I will share this book with a friend at the high school. A wonderful life story of a girl growing up in Cuba during the early Castro years before she and her family left their homeland and emigrated to the US A sad and inspiring account of everyday life in the communist dictatorship The writing style is engaging and places you on the beautiful island midst the warm relationships among people If you ever wanted to know what it is like to live in Cuba, this is the book to read. With Fidel's passing, this memoir feels evenrelevant and pertinent to the reader The writer includes a welldeveloped history of Cuba before and after Fidel seizes his position as a leader The memoir portions are placed perfectly throughout the text as a sprinkling of the demise of Cuba There are stories of sadness and loss, struggles and pain; yet, it also shows the intense faith and hope of a people Dania opens her own heart and shares the journey of her family, a family that lives through the changes of Cuba I found it most interesting to read a text that delivers a clear picture of the lifealtering move into communism It is a slow decay of a culture and people Fidel is a cruel thief who to some seemed intoxicating, the perfect recipe of a monster It is written from the perspective of a young girl with the grown experience and reflection of a woman A must read. I read this book after I went to Cuba It is very informative with regards to Cuba before and after Fidel It shows the other side of Cuba they don't tell you about while you're there. Cubans were wealthy in spirit They didn't put anyone down because they were poor or had less or because they lived in a humble neighborhood That is really an American thing 15% in to the Kindle Book Not exactly sure what this means here, but as an American, I was not thrilled to read this.
