Surviving Santiago

(3) YA In 1989, Tina spends a summer in Santiago, Chile, with her estranged father, a subversive, alcoholic journalist damaged physically and mentally by torture under the Pinochet dictatorship. To distract herself, Tina starts up an unexpectedly dangerous romance with a handsome motorcyclist. A companion to Gringolandia, this volume's complex character studies and well-realized setting make for a compelling read that balances brutality with redemption.
