Wonderful book about a girl named Naomi and her brother Owen who live with their great grandmother in an RV park. It's a good life for them, although Naomi wonders about her past, mostly her parents. When her mother shows up, Naomi has mixed feelings, and as the situation unfolds, it becomes necessary to track down their father in Mexico before all they hold dear is lost. It's a wonderful story about finding out who you are, love, and courage, and is rich with culture and imagination. I would recommend it for anyone age 10 and up.
