“Getting dirty means doing what we have to do for our families and for those around us, given the realities of where we live, in this mess of a life that is good and bad.” This is not a bad book, but it is my least favourite Stork book to date and I think that's at least partially because I feel...

Existence in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico requires a combination of courage, vigilance and restraint. The typical work-day commute equals exposure to potential harassment and harm. Truly dangerous, totally unavoidable. Students don’t have the luxury of focusing on academics or sports. Families need fina...

2.5 stars The ending was a total cop-out. I liked The Last Summer of the Death Warriors’ open ending, but this one was unsatisfactory on so many levels, with many loose ends left. Character-wise, it’s also the weakest out of all of Stork’s books. Sara needs to be fleshed out further and while Emili...

Great family survival story. I love Stork's writing. He makes difficult subjects extremely readable and relate-able, and his characters are always great and memorable.

Francisco's brilliant writing meets THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO as Sara Zapata searches for her best friend, who was kidnapped by the Juarez mafia. It all unfolds over four days, and it's amazing.

I finished this book ten minutes ago and I'm still reminding myself to breathe. It's so intense, beautiful, moving, and oh-my-gosh-it-got-intense-again. I'm particularly impressed with how Stork talks about dark topics (addiction, cartels, crimes against women) with enough nuance to inform the st...

Characters are sympathetic, though perhaps a little stock. I agree that there is some authorial artifice employed here to make the book suspenseful but safe for younger readers (despite the older protagonists) - perhaps a little like Gratz's Refugee in that respect. Wish the ending offered more c...

Disappeared is a very suspenseful book, I could never predict what was going to happen. When I did predict what was going to happen it was always wrong. Disappeared is also a mysterious book, there was a lot of it. The one thing I didn't like about it was the ending, it made feel mad, upset, and...

I loved the fact that this doesn’t just tell a sad story to tell a sad story, but it tells a true sad story. This book helped me understand why there are lots of Mexicans coming to the U.S.. I feel like this book showed the conflicts of man v.s. self. As in one of the main characters his is in a...
