Overview

Patricia Selbert and her sister leave their home on the Caribbean island of Curaçao when their ambitious, impulsive, and emotionally unstable mother takes them in search of the American dream. They drive across the United States from Miami to Hollywood, where their funds run out and their car becomes their first American home. The narrative

immigrant who ultimately finds her place and her identity in a new
country. Patricia's story will resonate with anyone who has had to
create a new life for themselves.
