"The novel follows a mixed-status family as they struggle to survive and reunite after a father’s deportation from the United States. The teenage Talia, American-born but raised in Colombia, escapes a reform school in the Andes and races to make her plane to rejoin her mom and siblings in New York. Twenty years of page-turning family history are told as she rushes to catch that plane." - The New York Times.
