American Dirt
American Dirt By Cummins, Jeanine Book - 2020 | First U.S. edition.

A frightening Mexican migrant experience of a woman and her young son fleeing the omnipresent cartel in Mexico headed to the U.S. I thought Lydia's relationship with Javier was rather disconcerting. An easy read, simply written, with the exception of the off-putting italicized Spanish. The entire cultural appropriation argument is also a concern, but the story needs to be told.
