The imagery transported me to Peru, with the vivid landscapes, and food/drinks native to Peru. The story follows Tamara a young girl who is terrified of being back in Peru visiting her family. The year before there was a horrible Earthquake where she almost died. Being back with her family in Peru brings back all of the traumatic events that she lived through and has been dealing with since she left. Throughout the story, you can see tremendous growth from Tamara as she faces dangers she could never think imaginable.
All the while she is trying to help her friend and figure out who the murderer really is. I had suspicions of who the murderer might be and as the story progressed there were hints to lead you in different directions. The author does an excellent job of making you want to continue reading. This is the perfect book for the young reader who enjoys a mystery.
