The alarming murder of women and girls throughout Mexico and Central/South America over the past several decades has received international attention within the academic and activist community, but very few citizens in the United States understand the brutal realities. This piece of fiction, based on real-life events, examines the lives of one family in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, and the overwhelming sacrifices they make in an effort to get justice in a system designed to protect the privileged and exploit women at all costs. The novel removes language and cultural barriers to allow the average reader inside the horrific world of femicide, barbarity, corruption and the vicious world of border politics on both sides of the border. The author spent five years researching this book. She traveled throughout Chihuahua, Mexico visiting family and friends of the missing or murdered. She interviewed undercover Mexican police, police officers, victim support groups, religious groups, children and teen organizations supported by the state, and many, many children whose families have been terrorized. The author also interviewed victim support groups, immigration lawyers, and surviving families in El Paso, Texas and surrounding areas.
