She is the author of Island of Bones (Nebraska, 2012) and the novel Hell or High Water, a National Latino Book Club selection.

"[Castro's] story is, more than merely engaging, downright embracing. The unfolding fates of Castro and her brother as they endure abuse at the hands of those entrusted with their care, even though we know they emerged whole and sane, prove utterly gripping."--Booklist--Booklist
