About

Overview

A LibraryReads Selection

Lydia Quixano Pérez lives a comfortable middle-class life in Acapulco, Mexico, with her son, Luca, and her journalist husband. Lydia runs a bookstore and one day meets an erudite and charming customer named Javier. Unbeknownst to Lydia, he is the jefe of the city’s newest drug cartel. After Lydia’s husband publishes a tell-all profile of Javier, Lydia and eight-year-old Luca are forced to flee Mexico. The two are instantly transformed into migrants, riding la bestia — trains to United States, beyond Javier’s reach. As they join countless people trying to reach el norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?
