Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In alternating chapters, narrators Ortega and Barillas artfully flesh out these and additional characters with myriad voices, accents, and cadences. As the pace and danger intensify, the narrators expose the characters’ personal struggles with exhaustion and inner turmoil as they grapple with moral choices.” Booklist (audio review)
Stork deftly writes criminals who aren’t monsters but men who do monstrous things, and…he really impresses with his evocation of Sara’s need to navigate the advances of men she knows and doesn’t know and the powerful women equally dangerous to her…A tense thriller elevated by Stork’s nuanced writing and empathy for every character, including the villains—superb.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A riveting story…It highlights the harsh complexity of young Mexicans’ lives. Readers will find this thrilling as well as eye-opening.” Booklist (starred review)
“Part thriller, part sociological study, the novel sheds light on poverty, corruption, and greed while bringing readers intimately close to the plight of those who illegally cross borders with the hope of a brighter future.” Publishers Weekly
