Twelve-year-old Cumba must find his courage after immigrating to the United States by himself, without his family. It is 1961 and Fidel Castro’s rule is solidified after the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. On his own in an unfamiliar country, Cumba must navigate a new school and city all while speaking a new language.Adrianna Cuevas, Cuba in My Pocket
