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.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 26, 2004 –  In what PW called "pitch-perfect narration," in a starred review, a 12-year old girl living in the Dominican Republic in 1960 relates the terrors of her country's regime and the attempt to overthrow Trujillo's dictatorship. Ages 12-up.

DONT BUY IT!!

The worst book EVER!!!! I wouldn't recommend u buying this book

an amazing book😍

must buy , Julia Alvarez tells the true meaning of what it was like to line in the "Trujillo Era". Being dominican myself , it was written beautifully

Needed to buy this for school.

The title gives you everything you need to know about this book. You know a book is going to boring if you are required to read it in school. Now, if I wasn't required to read it in school, and I read it outside of school, I might of liked it. But seriously, this book isn't that good.
