As if Sandra Cisneros wrote a kid's book set in small-town Jamaica. The sense of place is so deep that the protagonist's neighborhood feels like its own character, and the plot is driven not by individuals' actions but by the community as a whole. Truly excellent writing. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky
