It is 1957, in a quiet Havana suburb. Adela Santiago is thirteen and lives in a small blue house with her family. But something is amiss. Students on her street are disappearing, her parents’ marriage seems to be disintegrating and a cousin is caught up in a bombing at a luxury hotel. Welcome to the revolution. Welcome to Cuba.

"For a young woman’s debut novel, Viviana Prado-Núñez writes with assurance, eloquence and beauty."

– Jamila Gavin, author of “Coram Boy”, winner of the Whitbread Prize for Children’s Book of the Year

 

A gorgeously written story, full of nuance, sadness, and the joy of growing up. A terrific debut from an exciting new voice in young people’s literature.

– Daniel José Older, author of the award-winning YA series “The Shadowshaper Cypher”.
