Publisher's Summary

I always thought that the biggest trial in my life was my name, Naomi Guadalupe Zamora Outlaw, but little did I know that it was the least of my problems, or that someday I would live up to it.

One evening, everything Naomi has known with Gram and her little brother begins to unravel. Naomi's mother wants to kidnap her. Gram is willing to go to the end of the earth to save Naomi, but will that be enough? A quiet life in Lemon Tree, California, becomes a runaway journey to find an estranged father in exotic Oaxaca, Mexico.

    Story
    "Great story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to kids age 10 and up--good to listen with a parent because there are adult problems viewed from the child's perspective (alcoholism, abandonment, divorce).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character (Naomi Leon) grows and changes in an important way in the story, the plot is interesting, and the setting changes enough to keep everyone engaged.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene when they wake up in "Baby Beluga" (their grandmother's trailer) as it is driving down the highway.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader has a nice way of changing her voice to fit the characters--she does a good job with accents and with the Spanish words.
