'Heartstopping... doesn't let up... you will urge them on, fists clenched' The Times

An extraordinary story of the lengths a mother will go to to save her son, AMERICAN DIRT has sold over 2 million copies worldwide. It's time to read what you've been missing.

Lydia Perez owns a bookshop in Acapulco, Mexico, and is married to a fearless journalist. Luca, their eight-year-old son, completes the picture. But it only takes a bullet to rip them apart.

In a city in the grip of a drug cartel, friends become enemies overnight, and Lydia has no choice but to flee with Luca at her side. North for the border... whatever it takes to stay alive. The journey is dangerous - not only for them, but for those they encounter along the way. Who can be trusted? And what sacrifices is Lydia prepared to make?

Loved this book. Unbelievable what some people have to go through!

AMERICAN DIRT

This book was so real, so raw, so incredibly perceptive in so many ways. Having grown up in Tucson and never having any knowledge of the pain, fear, determination and strength of these remarkable people has certainly been dramatic eye opener. The writing is so beautifully crafted and every word moved me. I’m so grateful to my bookclub for suggesting this wonderful book.
