Publisher Description

Anita de la Torre never questioned her freedom living in the Dominican Republic. But by her 12th birthday in 1960, most of her relatives have emigrated to the United States, her Tío Toni has disappeared without a trace, and the government’s secret police terrorize her remaining family because of their suspected opposition of el Trujillo’s dictatorship.

Using the strength and courage of her family, Anita must overcome her fears and fly to freedom, leaving all that she once knew behind.

From renowned author Julia Alvarez comes an unforgettable story about adolescence, perseverance, and one girl’s struggle to be free.

Toaster Snail ,

Read as a school book for 6th gradw

I was not too interested in the book myself, but it gave me the feeling that I needed to know what happened. I ended up reading ahead to get over with the book and I’d say it’s worth it. The strong topics hit home a lot. The topics of things like rape were touched on, but handled with care and not insulted. The book was perfect for class, and helped every one learn a bit more about their county, most/all students come from the D.R.
