This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Patricia Selbert and her sister leave their home on the Caribbean island of Curaçao when their ambitious, impulsive, and emotionally unstable mother takes them in search of the American dream. They drive across the United States from Miami to Hollywood, where their funds run out and their car becomes their first American home. The narrative recounts the story of Patricia's life both on the colorful Curaçao and in seedy Hollywood of the 1970s. The memories of her beloved grandmother guide Patricia through her complex journey as a teenage immigrant who ultimately finds her place and her identity in a new country. Patricia's story will resonate with anyone who has had to create a new life for themselves.
