Into the Beautiful North
by Luis Alberto Urrea
Nayeli is a 19 year old girl working at a small taco shop in her very small town in Mexico. Little by little she has watched her whole life as the men leave the town to go north to American to find work, leaving her home defenseless and vulnerable to banditos.
After watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli hatches a scheme to go north and recruit her own seven men "Seite Magnificos" to protect her home from the drug lords who plan to take it over.
This story is rich with characters you will not forget! I loved Nayeli and her snarky Aunt Irma, who is also running for Mayor. It also has this funny, feel good quality to it that left me happy, and wanting to know more.
I have one copy to give away courtesy of Miriam at Hatchette Books!
