    Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who left the family to work in the United States. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village - they've all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men - her own "Siete Magnificos"---to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over.

    "Entertaining Teen Read"
    Overall

    My monthly book club chose this book, I had no idea what to expect. Based on the title I assumed it was about Canada or Minnesota. I was pleasantly surprised that the book was about some Mexican teenagers on a mission to bring men back to their town. I enjoyed this book. It is fun and offers an interesting perspective. The characters were fun, young and energetic. The book touched on some of the everyday violence in parts of Mexico. The best part, in my opinion, were the border crossing sections; very interesting. However, the book's overall tone seems more geared towards adolescence readers. I would recommend the book to teen readers or adults looking for a fun read without "substance."
