Chapter Book of the Day

90 Miles to Havana

by Enrique Flores-Galbis (Author)

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.

Snippet:

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.”
