I liked American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins despite the controversy. It’s the story of Lydia and her son Luca whose entire family is murdered by a drug cartel. She and Luca must flee Acapulco and make their way north to safety in America. It’s a fast-paced, hold-your-breath kind of read and a really interesting story. I didn’t adore it and I’m not sure why. Perhaps I need some lighter reading in this moment in time? I did really enjoy it, but it wasn’t a five star read for me.
