    Seré honesto, durante la mayoría del libro no entendía lo que estaba ocurriendo (tenías como 12 años cuando lo leí) y realmente no captaba lo que estaba ocurriendo, ¿por qué los protagonistas estaban atrapados?, ¿qué era eso tan importante que los limitaba a aquel espacio? Hasta cierto punto siento que literalmente leí el libro con los ojos de la protagonista.

Hasta cierto punto siento que literalmente leí el libro con los ojos de la protagonista. Fue solo al final, cuando entendí el contexto de la guerra y el valor del silencio, que entendí el fuerte drama que se vive en cada una de las paginas. A pesar de que no pasa nada que pueda ser considerado "gore" consideró la historia muy densa y cargada de una significancia bastante subida de tono.

    Me gustó. Es un libro bastante crudo y peca de entretenido. No obstante, ese final me dejó decepcionado, francamente. 2.5

    Although this is supposed to be children's book, it was very violent, and had some sexual situations in it that should have been left out. I would not recommend it.

    The first of my mother's YA novels, THE HONORABLE PRISON, is from the point of view of a young girl, about a family in exile in an unnamed Latin American country.

    Powerful tale of a family put under house arrest at a remote military base because the father refuses to stop publishing newspaper articles criticizing the dictator of a Latin American country. It's told from the point of view of the oldest daughter, 17, who narrates the story sparely but with great emotion. The terror of the imprisonment, the arbitrariness of the guards, and their slowly disintegrating situation are all woven into a strong tapestry of what it is to be young and powerless.
