This tale from Edwidge Danticat's National Book Award-nominated collection takes listeners to Haiti during the tense period following the 1991 coup d'Etat. Fifteen-year-old Lamort knows better than to walk about after curfew. But Emilie, a newly arrived boarder from America, does not understand the danger. Emilie will do anything to learn what happened to her missing mother, even if it means putting her own life-and Lamort's-on the line.
