I wanted to acknowledge everyone who has taken the time to read and comment on my midgrade historical novel manuscript, EXILE. Their insights have been crucial to the development of this story. A special thank you goes to Oscar A. del Junco for his thorough review and Spanish language corrections. I've been blessed with several readers in the Pedro Pan, Cuban and middle grade communities and within my circle of family and friends. I appreciate all the new friends I've made through this experience and look forward to many more interactions in the future!
