Meet the Authors
Introducing a reluctant heroine Katie, the sometimes insecure daughter of two successful Mexican-American lawyers. Raised in a sheltered and loving environment in the beautiful, affluent, and mostly white Paradise Valley, Arizona, Katie’s privileged life allowed part of her family to become complacent and ignore political and social attacks to the Mexican-American community.
Katie’s increasingly successful crusade to fight injustice makes her a target, as powerful forces become aware of the danger to their interests and scheme to squash her movement. This story shows the irreversible damage caused by greed and scapegoating, as well as cultures coming together.
