Summary
After emigrating from Cuba to Miami in 1967, Yara Garc$a tries to find her place in her new surroundings, but freedom has its price as her mother unexpectedly begins to demonstrate her newly gained independence while her father joins forces with an anti-Castro militant group. Original.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
First Person Fiction is dedicated to the immigrant experience in modern America. "Flight to Freedom" is closely based on Suarez's own story of leaving Cuba during the Freedom Flights of the 1960s.

Yara Garcia and her family live a middle-class life in Havana, Cuba. But in 1967, as Communist ruler Fidel Castro tightens his hold on Cuba, the Garcias, who do not share the political beliefs of the Communist Party, are forced to flee to Miami, Florida. There, Yara encounters a strange land with foreign customs. She knows very little English, and she finds that the other students in her new school have much more freedom than she and her sisters. Tension develops between her parents, as Mami grows more independent and Papi joins a militant anti-Castro organization.
