This is a beautiful, well-executed graphic novel. The way the dialog moves from English to spanglish to "spanish" is well-thought out, and the drawings can make you feel like you're there. The main character is a well-meaning naif who moves to Mexico City and gets in over her head. The situations and characters feel very real, particularly the main character. I avoid people like her in real life, so it is a powerful testament to the high quality of Abel's work that I found it hard to finish the book because the protagonist was so realistic I didn't want to spend time watching her get more than she bargained for in Fictionland.
