There's a fair amount of soul-searching mixed in that I could have lived without, but it is a good story.

If you are fond of immigrant narratives like myself you will like this. The story is compelling of a child sent to the US just with his brother after Castro's take over, but not that well written. The politic is very anti Castro and not that I am pro but it seemed to lack any nuance in this view.
