Abstract:
On the corner of American Street and Joy Road, Fabiola Toussaint thought she would finally find une belle vie?a good life. But after they leave Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Fabiola?s mother is detained by U.S. immigration, leaving Fabiola to navigate her loud American cousins, Chantal, Donna, and Princess; the grittiness of Detroit?s west side; a new school; and a surprising romance, all on her own. Just as she finds her footing in this strange new world, a dangerous proposition presents itself, and Fabiola soon realizes that freedom comes at a cost. Trapped at the crossroads of an impossible choice, will she pay the price for the American dream?
