Reviews

Smooth dialogue, a quick pace, and palpable suspense combine to make a compelling read. . . . A riveting story of love and acceptance amid a tumultuous political landscape.

--Kirkus Reviews
[F]or collections in need of literature with Hispanic protagonists and historical time periods not often covered in schools.School Library Journal--School Library Journal

[I]ntriguingly multilayered.--Booklist
While Surviving Santiago is a companion novel to Gringolandia (Curbstone, 2009), it can be read as a standalone. The setting in Chile creates a tense atmosphere for this historical fiction novel.--VOYA
