what people are saying
"Narrator Inés del Castillo gives 15-year-old Lilliana an authentic-sounding voice as she speaks directly to the listener...[she] captures Lillianna's varied emotions as she tries to fit in among the wealthy suburbanites, learns her family's secrets, finds her voice, and moves to connect her worlds."
-Audiofile Magazine, Don't Ask Me Where I'm From
"...she is doing an iconic job. She makes my writing sound so much funnier than it actually is and she has the perfect 'edge to her voice as Emanuela."
Mara Fitzgerald, author, Beyond the Ruby Veil
"Inés del Castillo gives spirited voice to absolutely everyone in this packed first novel about a flamboyant Venezuelan family living illegally in Trinidad. Del Castillo gives our protagonist, the feisty 20-something daughter named Yola, a nice mix of sarcasm, drama, and sweetness. She also handles with flair Yola's love of swearing and over-the-top descriptions. The rest, from Yola's in-your-face mother to the menacing Mr. Ugly, are rendered just as believably."
