no means no.

The Boy Who Said No by Patti Sheehy is based on a true story, yet reads like a novel. Told from the point-of-view of young Frank Mederos, who is desperate to escape Cuba (under the rule of Castro Fidel) for the land of the free, a boy who has all odds against him.

We watch as our courageous protagonist falls in love, is drafted into the army in Cuba where he is quickly promoted to the Special Forces, and despite his position in the military, still cannot safely leave his home country to meet his girlfriend in America. Sheehy keeps the suspense high as Frank risks his life to obtain the freedom every one of us constantly takes for granted.
