Under the Mesquite

By The Story Siren

Such a beautifully written story. Sad but hopeful… This was a very emotional story. Watching Lupita deal with things that no person let alone a teen should endure was heartbreaking. Yet, she remains poised and unyielding. She’s an admirable character.

Besides the story itself, I loved the cultural aspect of this novel, being exposed to and learning about a culture much different than my own is always something that I enjoy.

Under the Mesquite was just a wonderful story. It was heartbreaking yet hopeful.
