The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez.
This is the tale of 14-year-old Lucía Álvarez, who has been relocated with her younger brother from Cuba to the United States as part of Operation Pedro Pan—an operation that facilitated the flight of more than 14,000 Cuba children to the US to flee Fidel Castro’s revolution. Lucía misses the way it used to be before the revolution came marching into her small Cuban town and changed everything. As she adapts to her new life in the heartland of America, she wonders if she will ever see her parents, or her homeland, again.
