Publisher Comments:

MILLY KAUFMAN ES una adolescente estadounidense común y corriente que vive en el estado de Vermont hasta que un estudiante nuevo llamado Pablo llega a su escuela secundaria. Su acento exótico, su extraño sentido de la moda y el interés intenso que Milly despierta en él hacen que ella enfrente su identidad de niña adoptada del país natal de Pablo. A medida que su relación crece, Milly decide emprender un viaje lleno de valentía de regreso a su paÍs natal y en el camino descubre que la historia de su nacimiento está entrelazada con la historia de un país que se recupera de una brutal historia marcada por la dictadura y la corrupción política.

     La galardonada autora Julia Alvarez teje una conmovedora historia que examina la adopción entre culturas al describir la búsqueda de una adolescente por encontrar quién es ella exactamente, sólo para descubrir que ella es —de manera maravillosa y misteriosa— muchas cosas.

Fifteen-year-old Milly Kaufman is an average American teenager until Pablo, a new student at her school, inspires her to search for her birth family in his native country.
