    This is the story of Anita de la Torre, a 12-year-old girl living in the Dominican Republic in 1960. Most of her relatives have immigrated to the United States, her Tio Toni has disappeared, Papi has been getting mysterious phone calls about butterflies, and someone named Mr. Smith and the secret police have started terrorizing her family. While Anita deals with this frightening series of events, she also struggles with her adolescence and her own personal fight to be free.

    Suzy Fox says: "A great follow-up to En el Tiempo de las Mariposas"

    Story
    If you could sum up Antes de Ser Libres [Before We Were Free] in three words, what would they be?

    gut-wrenching, heroic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Antes de Ser Libres [Before We Were Free]?

    when the family first learned of the confirmed death of their father


    What does Maria Siccardi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved her child-like voice - added to the To Kill a Mockingbird feeling of the narration


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Another perspective from the author of En el Tiempo de las Mariposas


    Any additional comments?

    I have been listening to these books (also the Cuando era puertorriqueno series by Santiago) to practice my Spanish skills. I was not prepared for how absolutely delightful and thought-provoking they would be. I wish you had dozens more like them!
