Read this if you have any interest in Latin American history and it's impact on being a marginalized young person in the USA. Awesome innovative method of telling the story of the Trujillo era of the Dominican Republic as it pertains to the generation after Trujillo.
This is a fantastic story that went right to the heart of what are meant to be Oscar. painted beautiful pictures with words and took us into his universe from a friends perspective. I loved it.
The characters were believable. The dark, painfully realistic plot was poignant. I recommend this book and transporting yourself to a glimpse of the those born in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
