90 Miles to Havana

304 pages

Booktalk: 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.


My mother waits for the kitchen door to slam shut and then sits down. She hides her face in her hands. “She’s not just a nosy neighbor; she can have you sent away.”

“I’m sure she can’t–” my father starts, but my mother interrupts him.

“Yes, she can and they’re doing it already.”
