Reviews

"Simply powerful, Colombian artist Canizales' illuminating, expressively rendered graphic novel translated from the Spanish contains moments of great beauty (particularly Andrea's memories of her husband and father) among numerous scenes of deep anguish . . . A brutal, vital text."--starred, Kirkus Reviews

"Andrea's desire for--and journey toward--justice, which is portrayed via simultaneously harrowing and tender flashbacks of her life with her husband and baby, proves a powerful exploration of hope amid displacement and despair."--Publishers Weekly

"Canizales's shadow-filled, jungle-focused, black-and-white art captures the pain of displacement from one's physical and spiritual world . . . [P]resents teens with many compelling visual and emotional moments."--School Library Journal
