When Nieve Guerra finds herself caught between the tides of her parents’ turbulent relationship and a country torn apart by political unrest, she begins recording the intimate and harsh details of her life within the pages of her diary. Nieve is sent away from her mother, her mother’s free-spirited and loving Swedish boyfriend Fausto, and her childhood city of Cienfuegos and forced to endure unrelenting abuse at the hand of her father. Only her diary will not leave her. It is her only friend, her sole outlet for her joy, sadness, and anger, and because of it she is able to remain in Cuba, her only home.

  • “A book that delivers real news from Cuba in a lyrical way”
