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?

In shock at how good this story was!

Gripped! The most unique, heart-wrenching, terrifying and well written novel I’ve read in years!

The book held me hostage. Only my eyes moved as I attempted to absorb this story in a matter of hours. Such talent. Gracias.

Couldn’t put it down!

Kept my attention from start to finish! An amazing, well written, descriptive happy and yet sad story. Best book I’ve read in a long time!

Didn’t meet the hype

Really didn’t do it for me. I just couldn’t get into this book. It was recommend to me by a few people who loved it and I would recommend it. I think I just heard too many rave reviews and was left a bit deflated when expectations were not met.
