I found this book about a kidnapped Guatemalan girl, and though it is written for a middle school audience (in the voice of the twelve year old protagonist), adults can appreciate it as well -- at times, it seems like she is narrating from when she is older, though it is written as if the events occurred recently on an ongoing basis (tense is sort of strange in fiction that way). Good book with a flavor of the place and culture. Bit scary for kids.
