Teen Read

In The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys, eighteen-year-old Daniel Matheson, traveling with his parents, arrives in 1957 Madrid.  While they enjoy the sun and wine, Daniel hopes to connect more deeply with the country of his mother’s birth, using the lens of his camera.  His guide is Ana, who introduces him to the lingering wounds and reveals the dark side of Franco’s regime.  Sepetys has crafted a ‘captivating, deft, and illuminating historical fiction” (enough so that you grown-ups might enjoy it, too).
