Note
Returning to her homeland of Santiago, Chile, is the last thing that Tina Aguilar wants to do during the summer of her sixteenth birthday. It has taken eight years for her to grow comfortable in the United States, and it has been three years since her father left his family to work underground against the dictatorship. Despite insisting on the visit, Tina's father spends all his time absorbed in politics and alcohol rather than connecting with Tina. And when Tina attracts the attentioin of a young, heavy metal-loving stranger, the hairpin turns he takes her on expose her to danger as much as they bring her closer to the truth. The tense final months of the Pinochet regime in 1989 provide the backdrop for author Lyn Miller-Lachmann's suspenseful tale of the survival and redemption of the Aguilar family, first introduced in the critically acclaimed Gringolandia
