An interesting read, and she gets the mindless entitlement of colonial Americans right. But the book is full of anachronisms. I suspect her editor is 30-ish, and neither Rachel nor her editor seems to realize magic markers and plastic bags- to name just 2 things- did not exist in 1952, much less in Cuba.

This book is about Cuba pre-,during, and post-revolution in the 1950's. Told from multiple characters' perspectives, including a wealthy American pre-teen born and raised on a Cuban sugar plantation. When forced to evacuate Cuba, he is devastated and feels a loss at having to leave his "home" country. Discusses all sides of the revolution, from the wealthy sugar lords to the soldiers fighting for the people's revolution, with the common theme that all share a love of their country. Paints an interesting, whimsical at times, perspective of Cuba during this historical time period.
