      They are always hungry. The mere touch of fur, even in a coat, caused her nausea. It was after this summer job that Elin vowed to have a real summer for the rest of the summers of her lifetime. Cooke intersperses the stories of many young Cubans with her own experiences, in an entertaining and thought provoking read. Kirkus Reviews Powell is a softy at heart, appreciating Child because, she says, Child "wants you to remember that you are human, and as such are entitled to that most basic of human rights, the right to eat well and enjoy life.

      Cuba is a country of great extremes. The author shreds not just one opponent, but a series of intellectual bigots, prostitutes, and manipulators of the common man. It's the kind of book you want your friends to read so you can dicuss theories with them. Her mother is dead, her father has his own dark desires, and she has to grow up much too fast. Trina teaches this coping mechanism to the others. But is it possible that Julia Paradise knows more about him than she's letting on?

      In the final chapters, Joyce and Trina lead a group of children on a daring escape attempt with the help of Captain Aubrey and Adam the gorilla — who, it turns out, can speak. Following her real life moving story of cancer and a double mastectomy, Elin prays that she will be able to beat the disease in the most heroic fashion, at least for her children. She is the brains behind publications such as The Island and Summer People. More than 90 pages of footnotes to contemporary sources in their original languages make his thesis unassailable.
