The Fortunate Accident by Francine Rodriguez is a very modern novel that talks about things that actually happen around us. Alberto is our hero and he is an antihero. He is a member of the Hispanic community. He is a 'notario,' he writes and reads English fluently and that gives him an edge and respect in his community. He emigrated from Mexico and now he helps people translate their documents and fill their forms. He helps people legalize their immigration, including people who are jailed or charged with felonies, and, overall, helps his community as much as he can. On the surface, he is a savior, a man who is almost a guardian angel to his community in this strange land.

In truth, he is just a man who will do anything to forward his agenda and make as much money as he can. He has created a façade and has people who are in debt to him. He destroys anyone who gets in his way; he is powerful and he creates situations to survive, even if it means that there will be consequences and causalities. 

This was certainly an unusual theme and gives one something different to read other than the usual humdrum novels. I loved to hate Alberto. He is cruel, capricious, and erratic. But he is also extremely smart. At a time when people are reading about goody two shoes heroes, Alberto stands out. His character development was spot on and made me grudgingly give him credit for his audacious schemes and ideas. This novel deserves nothing less than 5 stars.
