Marisol loves her colorful home in Cuba with its vibrant people and food and flowers that she picks with her father on their way to the library. But Cuba is changing, and it isn't long before the home she once knew is no longer safe. And then her parents announce it's no longer her home at all, and they're sending her to the United States... alone.Suddenly Marisol's world is devoid of the color it was once so full of as she begins a new life in cold, gray Brooklyn. Nothing about this new place is familiarthe language, the weather, the food, school, or even her foster parents. Marisol has never felt so lost; but she will find that perhaps the best way to find home is to stay true to herself.
