This product is currently sold out.
A powerful yet gentle telling of the journey of a 13-year-old girl traveling alone from Cuba to the United States in 1961, as a Pedro Pan, seeking a better life; safe from uncertainty. The book depicts the child’s feelings about leaving the only country she had known, her bewilderment in a new place where she did not know the language, and her adjustment to a strange, new environment. At first distressed about feeling different, she learned to flourish, eventually learning that each person is unique and that being different is good.
