17 Jun

Coming out in August, add this to your Amazon wishlist!

This memoir written by Susan McKinney De Ortega, follows her story of how she found herself in Mexico and is a great read for those nervous about the jump into Mexico’s culture alone .

In 1992 the author, the daughter of champion NBA coach Jack McKinney, was teaching English to Mexican teenagers when she met 19-year-old Carlos, who ardently pursues her despite the age and huge cultural differences. She resists at first, due to their divergent backgrounds–Ortega’s childhood was one of summer vacation rentals and white gloves at Mass, while Carlos was a high school dropout who didn’t have running water until age 10…” read more of the book description here.
