aBookList.com Summary

Abandoned by her mother since she was born and ignored by her father always at work, Maya Vidal has been raised by her grandparents, Popo and Nini in Berkeley, California. Her grandmother Nini, stubborn, outspoken but willful woman and her grandfather Popo, a kind-hearted African-American professor and astronomer, love and adore Maya a lot. They always try their best to bring a positive future for their granddaughter.  But when her grandfather dies due to the cancer, Maya seems to get lost and loses herself. The death of her beloved grandfather pushes Maya off of the precipice and takes her to the world of drugs, alcohol and crimes. She sinks deeper in the world filled of danger, violence and death and becomes the target of the assassins, the police, the FBI, and Interpol. Hunted by many people, Maya seems to come to the dead end.

Thanks to her grandmother Nini, Maya is saved. She is sent to Nini’s home land, Chiloe -  a remote island off the coast of Chile. Staying there, Maya tries to recover from the physical and psychological damage and settle down. Gradually, Maya comes to discover the secret of her family, which sets off a journey to her soul.

Publisher’s Summary

Neglected by her parents, 19-year-old Maya Nidal has grown up in Berkeley with her grandparents. Her grandmother Nini is a force of nature, a woman whose formidable strength helped her build a new life after emigrating from Chile in 1973. Popo, Maya’s grandfather, is a gentle man whose solid, comforting presence helps calm the turbulence of Maya’s adolescence.

When Popo dies of cancer, Maya goes completely off the rails, turning to drugs, alcohol, and petty crime in a downward spiral that eventually bottoms out in Las Vegas. Lost in a dangerous underworld, she is caught in the cross­hairs of warring forces. Her one chance for survival is Nini, who helps her escape to a remote island off the coast of Chile. Here Maya tries to make sense of the past, unravels mysterious truths about life and about her family, and embarks on her greatest adventure: The journey into her own soul.
