Editorial Reviews

Review

“Flores-Galbis ably portrays the harsh realities these young Cuban immigrants faced: little hope of reunification with family members, dwindling resources, and insufficient government support, while also conveying their resilience in the face of emotional upheaval.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Inspired by Flores-Galbis' experiences as a Pedro Pan refugee, the fast-moving story should easily hook both historical-fiction and adventure readers.” ―
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“It's hard to imagine any child putting this book down.” ―
School Library Journal

“It will introduce readers to a not-so-distant period whose echoes are still felt today and inspire admiration for young people who had to be brave despite frightening and lonely odds.” ―
Kirkus Reviews

“Drawing on his own experience as a child refugee from Cuba, Flores-Galbis offers a gripping historical novel about children who were evacuated from Cuba to the U.S. during Operation Pedro Pan in 1961. . . . This is a seldom-told refugee story that will move readers with the first-person, present-tense rescue narrative, filled with betrayal, kindness, and waiting for what may never come.” ―
Booklist

About the Author

Enrique Flores-Galbis, at age nine, was one of 14,000 children who left Cuba in 1961, without their parents, in a mass exodus called "Operation Pedro Pan." He and his two older brothers spent months in a refugee camp in southern Florida and this historical novel is inspired by that experience. Enrique is the author of RAINING SARDINES and he lives in Forest Hills, NY with his family.

At the airport their father smiled and handed each a box of good Cuban cigars, while their mother strained to hold back her tears. 90 Miles to Havana, his second novel describes his first hand experiences during the Cuban Revolution and his departure under Operation Pedro Pan to the refugee camps in miami. 90 Miles to Havana, received Pura Belpre Author Award from the American Library Association.

Enrique lives in New York City where he writes, paints, and then teaches others how to float. His work has received the following awards: Distinguished Educator Award from Parsons School of Design, The NYC Hispanic Arts Achievement Award, and the Cintas Fellowship for Painting.

His first YA novel, 'Raining Sardines,' received Honorable Mention for the Americas Award.
