Synopsis: Like Esperanza Rising and Rules of Attraction, this coming-of-age novel, Some Rivers End on The Day of the Dead follows a Hispanic teen, Marisol. She and her mother are on the run from their home in Tijuana, Mexico. Her father, investigating the drug wars as a journalist, has been murdered. But Marisol's new home is a riverbed camp in a rich California suburb. A wildfire separates Marisol from her mother and her school. Cut off and alone, she challenges herself to find a way to reunite with her family and to celebrate the Day of the Dead in Mexico to honor her father with the proper traditions.

From the Author: I wanted to write a book that would appeal to mothers and daughters, book clubs, and probably to their surprise, men.  I found the inspiration for Marisol quite by chance, and then fell in love with her character and her fortitude.  Although some editors have told me she is "too innocent," I believe there is a place for sweet, kind, innocent girls even in (and because of) our highly sexualized society.

Some Rivers End on the Day of the Dead follows Marisol's journey to understand her place in the world and to celebrate her Hispanic heritage.  El Dia de los Muertos is not a "cult of death," but joyous days to rejoice in the lives of those we have lost.  Marisol needs closure after losing her father, an American citizen and journalist, who is murdered while investigating the drug wars in Mexico.

The  characters, from the English teacher to the Sneeds, are entirely fictional.  Reviews mention Marisol's optimistic and humorous look at her struggles, something I worked to hone in this novel.
