Fifteen-year-old Nina Perez must leave her Garden of Eden, her lush island home in Samana, Dominican Republic. She is sent by her mother to live with her brother, Darrio, in New York to seek out a better life. As Nina searches for some glimpse of familiarity amid the urban and jarring world of Washington Heights, she learns to uncover her own strength and independence. As she is confronted with ugly secrets about her brother's business, she comes to understand the realities in this new place. But then she meets him - that tall, green-eyed boy - one that she can't erase from her thoughts, who just might help her learn to see beauty in spite of tragedy. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 234 pages
