La Perdida by Jessica Abel

This riveting story is inspired by the author's experiences in Mexico City. Carla, an American estranged from her Mexican father, heads to Mexico City to find herself. A story about the youthful desire to live an authentic life and the consequences of trusting easy answers, La perdida-at once grounded in the particulars of life in Mexico and resonantly universal-is a story about finding oneself by getting lost. NOTE: Published originally in English with the same title, La perdida. An emotional, beautifully crafted odyssey. -Kirkus Reviews
