Mamí felt sick but insisted on going. Now she coughed as we walked single file on the trail. ng as he picked his footing deliberately on the winding path to the caves. Papí wasn’t big, but his body, like a gnarled old branch, carried great physical and spiritual strength. A lifetime of work under the hot sun had toughened and aged his skin like old leather. Living had given him wrinkles of character. Wisdom had given him patience. Papí was a simple, honest man.

I really enjoyed this book. This book deals with the killings of the Indians in Guatamala in the 1980's. The Civil War taking place there is killing the Indians there, men, women, children- innocent people that have done nothing to be treated as such. The army trained by the USA is committing these atrocities and blame the rebels of doing this. This is a very enlightening book, I don't know where I was at this time because I was not aware of this going on. I recommend this book.

Extraordinary book from a young woman's point of view of war impacting innocent people! Not for grade school. More for teenage and adults. A must read for compassion and realism.

Very good book. Read it before going on a mission trip to Guatemala. Very insightful of the time period and what the Mayan-Guatemalan people experienced.

NiceOne
Great book about why people from Guatemala immigrate to the US.

This book is as much or more for adults than it is for adolescents. Tree Girl is a powerful story of the resilience and courage. Gabriela is a role model of strength. What more can Gabi endure. What she must witness is beyond words. It is a graphic realistic retelling of a true story. Honor Gabi, read and remember. Make a difference. Learn to play, have fun and enjoy life. Life is fragile and short. Learn, teach, listen.

Wow this book is a beautiful story there was time's I cried and time's I laughed and time's where I could say anything because of how they had so much and didn't know or think they did not they just had to dig deep and they would find it is truly amazing ;)

Akisame
This is a terrible book that everyone should read! It is very well written and covers topics that are not easy to read about. Ben Mikaelsen is a top notch author. Read all of his books!

So, I was reading all of these reviews saying that this book was boring. This was the best book I've ever read with parts that I cried during. It was the most meaningful book I've read in my entire life. GREAT JOB BEN MIKAELSON!
