“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.

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...

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.

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...

The book “Disappeared” by Francisco X. Stork absolutely amazed me. It took me on a adventure through Sara's dilemma with her friend Linda disappearing and her brother Emiliano having a tough time with his business. They story is told in third person point of view and switches between what's happe...

Supposedly the first sentence should indicate what to expect from a book.
"On the morning of November 14, the day she was kidnapped, Linda Fuentes opened the door to my house and walked into the kitchen, where my family was having breakfast;" so starts this amazing story. Sara Zapata is a journali...

Bringing to mind Saint Death by Marcus Sedgwick, this book by one of my favorite authors does an excellent job of dispelling many of the assumptions others hold about citizens of Mexico and about immigrants who leave their country to come to the United States. While the book does indeed explore t...

I went back and forth on this one. To be fair, the following things influenced my rating and review:
1. This is not my favorite or typical genre to read and I've read quite a few of them lately, so maybe I'm getting burned out.
2. The content of this book centers on Juarez-abducted girls, drug traf...
