This is a great, new book that nobody’s really heard of! It’s about a boy named Julian who lives in Havana, Cuba. A revelation is starting, though, and his parents are forced to send Julian and his older brothers away to Miami, Florida. There, Julian faces all sorts of obstacles and is left to deal with the new world he discovers and the aching pain he has for his missing family. You’ll just have to read it to see what happens next!
