Praise for Tortilla Sun

[A] strong debut….Cervantes fills her story with mystical possibilities– talking with spirits, hearing what the wind whispers, gathering powerful herbs by moonlight–but also with the inescapable realities of illness, death, and mourning. The result is an imaginative yet grounded novel.”
Publisher’s Weekly

Cervantes’s first novel is rich with local color-both physical landscapes and traditional spiritual beliefs.”
Booklist

Cervantes evokes the beauty of the setting and develops a memorable cast of characters, brought to life through Izzy’s heartfelt narration. A beautiful and engaging debut novel.”
