A Body Across Two Hemispheres is a timely book, one many of us need and will be grateful to have read. --Shara McCallum

A Body Across Two Hemispheres is the kind of memoir that makes us more human; the kind written with tenderness about ordinary people with ordinary and exceptional, bitter and beautiful, small and big lives. Like ours. --Adriana Pramo

Always honest and surprising, Buitrons book showcases multiple essay forms to tell a powerful, timeless story. A wonderful debut. --Dinty W. Moore

In this electrifying debut, Victoria Buitron comes of age between Ecuador and the United States as she explores her ancestry, learns two languages, and searches for a place she can call home. It portrays not only the immigrant experience, but the often-overlooked repatriate experience while interweaving facets of depression, family history, and self-love. With the utmost honesty, A Body Across Two Hemispheres encompasses the deep and complex layers of teenage life into adulthood--and the sacrifices made along the way for Victoria to become who she was meant to be all along.
