Two versions in one cover: One version for pre-intermediate learners starting from the front cover, but if you start reading from the back the reading will be more demanding and suited for learners at an intermediate level.
After years of oppression, Dionisio can no longer tolerate living in Cuba under Fidel’s iron fist. He longs for freedom and faces what seems to be impossible odds of finding it. He is shunned by his countrymen, abused by his government, and rejected by his family. This is the riveting true story of Dionisio´s search for freedom during a dark time under Cuba´s communist regime.
