Sinéad & Rick's Must Reads - American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

You may have already heard about ‘American Dirt’ as it’s a novel that’s caused quite a lot of controversy since it was published. As a work of fiction, I found it to be a fast paced, exhilarating book that left my heart racing.

It tells the story of Lydia and her eight-year-old son Luca as they are forced to flee for their lives from a violent drug lord. We follow their passage as they travel the treacherous and dangerous migrant path from Mexico to the US border where they attempt to journey towards a new life of safety and refuge. Along the way Lydia and Luca meet, and befriend, a colourful cast of fellow migrants. Together, they help each other as they face many dangers and horrors along the way. All in all, Jeanine Cummins has written a riveting and captivating book that I simply could not put down.
