Nice to Meet You MarcosSo, what do you think? Would you read this book?
(available for preview, hopefully, later in 2011)
This book has two main characters who couldn't be farther apart economically as well as geographically, living on opposite sides of the city.
Evelyn consumed with eating right, daily exercise, and the latest fashion is also opinionated and would do just about anything to advance in business. She works at a large firm and is determined to take her boss' job by the end of the year. Her husband is at the end of his medical internship and together they live an easy life of simple luxury.
At age 20, Santiago provides for this family the only way he knows how, by trading drugs. Caught up in the Mexican mafia he lost sight of the world around him but he did what he could to make sure his family was cared for at any cost. His family, broken in so many ways, leads Santiago in a hopeless situation. It is his comrade, Ruben, who would keep by his side through thick and thin.
Although Evelyn and Santiago's lives were extreme from each other and their paths never cross, both their lives were changed by one little boy named Marcos.
