“Castillo describes a childhood and young adulthood spent moving among Mexico, Chicago, and elsewhere, pursuing education, love, and a growing sense that writing could provide a way to make sense of her life and the difficulties faced by a nation with many cultures living side by side. It is a high-wire act, to bring together a combination of personality characteristics and specific cultural touchstones and make it resonate with a wider readership, but the author handles it well… a compassionate look at those crossing points in our shared lives.”
