    This author tells her story of leaving Cuba, growing up in America, falling in love, losing that love, and finding a new one. It's a quick read, 6 short stories, but a nice pick-me-up if you're feeling a little low. I particularly enjoyed the description of trying on bathing suits in a dressing room.

    Didn't finish it. Not bad, just not at a good point in my life to read it. Will try again as it isn't the book. It is me.
