About the Book

Multicultural and International Books Honor, Skipping Stones Magazine

Julia keeps lists--lists of everything she loses. Eventually those lists include her dad and her home. Writing in her diary keeps her going but she'll need more than that to find the truth.

12-year-old Julia keeps a diary about her life growing up in Juarez, Mexico. Life in Juarez is strange. People say it's the murder capital of the world. Dad's gone a lot. They can't play outside because it isn't safe. Drug cartels rule the streets. Cars and people disappear, leaving behind pet cats. Then Dad disappears and Julia and her brother go live with her aunt in El Paso. What's happened to her Dad? Julia wonders. Is he going to disappear forever? A coming-of-age story set in today's Juarez.
