Summary
Following the migrating monarchs across the United States to Mexico, Luz Avila arrives in San Antonio to find her aunt and meets her mother, who she had always believed dead. Now Luz must face her mother's reappearance in her life and get her grandmother's ashes to Mexico for the Day of the Dead
Summary
Luz Avila's beloved grandmother Esperanza has just died; the two of them had been planning to drive from Milwaukee to Esperanza's native Mexico to be in her hometown by the time the monarch butterflies stop there on their annual migration. To honor Esperanza, Luz takes off alone in a rusted-out old VW, ashes in a box in the back. But her destination-oriented road trip turns into an important journey in which unplanned stops in Chicago and Kansas teach her valuable lessons and give her new friends. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
