Master story-teller and poet Dede Fox offers readers this remarkable novel in verse. It is the story of seventeen-year-old Diana Greene and her travels from Texas to Mexico. The tale is one of adventure and romance, of culture shock, and genuine danger. Diana lands in Mexico during the revolutionary chaos prior to the 1968 Olympics. Her first love Guillermo vanishes the night of the Tlatelolco violence. Heartbroken, she searches for the truth about his disappearance, a quest that puts her in jeopardy from abusive police. Based on real events, 'On Wings of Silence' makes use of actual details from what historians now call the Tlatelolco Massacre, presented here through the eyes of a young woman readers will admire and care about.
