Victoria loves everything about her home in Cuba. The beautiful
land, the delicious food, her best friend and cousin, Jackie, and her
big, loving family. But it’s 1960 in Cuba, and as the political
situation grows more and more dangerous, Victoria, her parents, and her
two younger siblings are forced to seek refuge in America with nothing
more than two changes of clothes and five dollars. Worse, they’re forced
to leave the rest of their family, including Jackie, behind. In
Miami, everything is different. And it’s up to Victoria to step up and
help her family settle into this new world—even though she hopes they
won’t be there for long. Back in Cuba, everything feels different, too.
Jackie watches as friends and family flee, or worse, disappear. So, when
she’s given a chance to escape to America, she takes it—even though she
has to go alone. Reunited in Miami, can Victoria and Jackie find a way
to bring the rest of their family to safety?
