Jeanine Cummins's American Dirt, the #1 New York Times bestseller and Oprah Book Club pick that has sold over two million copies

Lydia lives in Acapulco. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while cracks are beginning to show in Acapulco because of the cartels, Lydia’s life is, by and large, fairly comfortable. But after her husband’s tell-all profile of the newest drug lord is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.

Forced to flee, Lydia and Luca find themselves joining the countless people trying to reach the United States. Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?

Captivating

I read this book in one day into the early hours of the next day. The story was grief stricken enough to leave you as a reader horrified at the struggles migrants have to take. Amazing read.

American Dirt

An amazing and thrilling tale of sorrow, life, and strength. The characters draw you in, captivate you, and when the story ends, it’s like you will miss them as if they have become a part of your life

Riveting!

I picked up this book because I wanted to learn more about stories of migrants. Especially with the recent news of deportations of Haitian migrants, being of Haitian descent, I wanted to feel the experience of migrants journey to cross the US boarder. I believe the author has opened my eyes in this book to provide motivation, risks and challenges migrants go through to reach USA or any other G7 country. She delivered with a plot that kept me on edge throughout the book.
