Product Overview

Mexico is a long way from Denver ? and not just in terms of miles. Epiphany Katherine (a.k.a. Pip) is spending a year with her grandmother in the rural mountain town of San Miguel. The trip is designed to give her parents enough time back home to decide whether to stay together or split up the family forever.Down in Mexico, everyone calls her Katrina and life is surprisingly exciting ? exotic birds, beautiful butterflies, holidays, colorful fiestas, and new friends like Lili. But there are also difficult lessons to be learned. Poverty and unemployment send Lili?s father and other men from the village to Colorado to work as migrant workers so they can send money back home to their anxious families. Meanwhile Pip is on the lookout for la fantasma (the ghost) that is said to haunt their rented house and with Lili?s help she discovers the truth behind the mysterious death in the village of a young American named Veronica.Skillfully weaving in the history and culture of Mexico, author Linda Lowery creates an affectionate portrait of the country and its people in this coming-of-age story of a spirited young girl who must travel far from home to finally find herself.
