Review copy E ARC via EdelweissPublisher with final copy via libraryEstrella is a fifteen year old with an appreciation of nature and poetry She loves sitting outside observing and reflecting on the world around her That world is beginning to turn upside down though People are disappearing Restrictive laws and violence targeting Mexicans are both increasing Estrella s family had kept her feeling safe and secure but things were changng rapidlyGuadalupe Garcia McCall allows readers to get a glimpse of Texas in the depression era and the picture is not a pretty one Most history books skip over the details The depression was a difficult time yes but there was an added challenge if you were Mexican or even seemed to be Mexican Families were being separated and repatriated Of course repatriation is just another word for deportation and this was even happening to US citizens who had never lived in MexicoEstrella and her family don t sit by and just watch all of these things happening They speak out and work for change This makes them a target Even Estrella s parents don t fully realize how vulnerable they are They still believe that their citizenship means something That papers and lawyers actually carry weightUnfortunately this story has many parallels to what we see happening in our country in the present time Some of the policies put into place back then are eerily familiar It was impossible to read this story without thinking of current news storiesReaders will feel the frustrations of Estrella and her mother as they push up against one roadblock after another The injustices just keep piling up over time There are racist systems in place but Estrella and her mother are also disadvantaged by their gender They keep fighting though When they are frustrated and face setbacks they look for things that are within their control and move forward Estrella is full of hope and determinationAs in her previous novel Shame the Stars McCall combines narrative text with poems snippets from newspapers telegrams and other bits of realia that add to the feeling of looking back into the pastThe resolution is a bit rushed but otherwise the pacing worked well Overall the book is a page turner and will stick with me for a long timeRecommendation Get it now especially if you enjoyed Shame the Stars It s a fantastic work of historical fiction that fills in some of the history that may be missing from textbooks and classroomsOriginal review posted here
