The loosely connected stories of Native Americans living in Oakland doesn't sound like much but by the 5th paragraph, I was hooked. The deftness with which Orange uses short vignettes to build a greater story speaks to his background and deep knowledge of the people and times of this book.
 

Set in Oakland, the geography, history, and culture of the greater San Francisco Bay Area rang true to me. When it came to the individuals in the story they were unique, sometimes gritty, but always interesting. Orange is a master at bringing the varied threads of each story together in an uneven yet compelling weave. It's a book I'll be thinking about for a long time.Judi Heher, Book Group Ambassador

In this faced paced novel, Contreras draws upon her life to create a novel that reads like a thriller and coming of age story set in her native Columbia. Chula is drawn to her live-in maid, Petrona who comes from a guerrilla-occupied slum. As the relationship between Petroana and Chula grows, so does the danger they find themselves in. I felt I was reading a diary of both Chula and Petrona's everyday lives. This only added to the depth of the story for me. The last half of the book I was rushing to devour every word. I was left heartbroken with the taste of reality both faced. —Laura Maxwell, Book Group Ambassador
