Synopsis: This book follows a boy from Texas who is visiting Spain in the 1950s when Spain is under a dictatorship. He bonds with the girl who serves him at the hotel he is staying at, and he begins to see a side of Spain that the rest of the world doesn’t know about.


Review: I LOVED this book. I have never read anything about Spain during this time, and I learned so much. It felt so real, and each time I picked up the book I was transported back in time. I have never read anything like this. I would highly recommend this book to any historical fiction lover.
