Flight to Freedom

Flight to Freedom: First Person Fiction Flight to Freedom: First Person Fiction by Ana Veciana-Suarez

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really liked this book. The story of Cuban-born Yara, starts out in Havana, 1967, where the regime of Castro is making life miserable for all those who oppose the Communists. Her family has decided to flee Cuba and head to Miami. This is a story based on the author's life, and it reads very true. An interesting glimpse into life during the 1960's, life for a family caught in-between two cultures--told from the heart of an 8th grade girl.
