March 19American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

Lydia Quixano Pérez runs a bookstore in the Mexican city of Acapulco. She has a son, Luca, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while there are cracks beginning to show in Acapulco because of the drug cartels, her life is, by and large, fairly comfortable.  When Lydia’s husband’s tell-all profile of Javier, the jefe of the newest drug cartel, is published, none of their lives will ever be the same. Forced to flee, Lydia and eight-year-old Luca soon find themselves miles and worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants, Lydia and Luca make their way north toward the United States, which is the only place Javier’s reach doesn’t extend. 

American Dirt will leave readers utterly changed. It is a literary achievement filled with poignancy, drama, and humanity on every page.
