Publisher's Summary

Winner of a Pura Belpré Award, this middle grade Cuban American coming-of-age novel is inspired by the author's own experience.

When Julian's parents make the heartbreaking decision to send him and his two brothers away from Cuba to Miami via the Pedro Pan operation, the boys are thrust into a new world where bullies run rampant and it’s not always clear how best to protect themselves.

    Story
    "It is real"

    This is real! Immigration for what ever need or want still mirrors hardship! The triumph is strong! As a mother of two boys I could never imagine the pain of making such a decision. As a social worker I respect the perils of all individuals who come to this country to make it great!

    Story
    "The Cuban Revolution through the eyes of a boy"
    Where does 90 Miles to Havana rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 25%


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 90 Miles to Havana?

    When the family drives down the familiar boulevard of Havana and sees people looting the houses of the rich. The father tells the son, "Remember this. This is what a revolution looks like."


    What does Enrique Flores-Galbis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Actually, although I liked his voice and subtle accent, I think an actor might have done a better job.


    Any additional comments?

    This is supposed to be a book for ages 10-14. I bought the audiobook for my dyslexic daughter when it was assigned in her 5th grade class. However, I really enjoyed it too!
