alan Review

when Guatemalan Soldiers Attack And Burn His Village, Santiago And His Four-year-old Sister, Angelina, Are The Only Survivors. This Violent Scene May Startle Some Readers, But It Also Introduces Them To The Tragedy Of Guatemala During The 1980s. Santiago’s Only Hope Is To Escape Guatemala, And His Only Means Of Doing So Is His Uncle Ramos’ cayuco, A Small Sailboat. From Here, The Novel Recounts Santiago And Angelina’s Arduous Trip From Guatemala To The Us. These Two Children Battle Hunger, Storms, And Sickness As They Sail Across The Gulf Of Mexico To Reach The Florida Coast. Initially Met With Anti-immigrant Hostility, A Poor Reflection On The Us Policy At The Time, They Are Eventually Granted Asylum And Allowed To Report Their Family’s Massacre. This Story Is Often Gripping, Told In The Present-tense Voice Of Santiago As He Confronts Each Trial. Readers Will Appreciate His Determination And Resourcefulness In The Face Of Great Danger, Although They May Find The Occasional Heavy-handed Political Commentary Intrusive. 2002, Harper Collins, 212pp., Fairbanks
