90 Miles to Havana by Enrique Flores-Galbis
90 Miles to Havana is a book about a young boy named Julian who is sent 90 miles away to Miami from his home in Cuba with his two older brothers. When he arrives in Miami he is sent a camp where the bullies are in charge. Julian, his two older brothers, and their friend Angelita, try to make things right at camp. When Julian finds out that the camp is only a temporary place and that in a week or two the kids either get sent to a foster home, get picked up by their parents, or get sent to an orphanage he must find a plan to keep his family together. How will Julian survive in this strange new place and will he ever see his parents again?
90 Miles to Havana has become one of my favorite books. I liked this book because Julian survives no matter what happens in his life. I would recommend this book to kids ages eleven and up.
