Lupita hard-knock life has gotten the better of her time and time again. A childhood robbed of innocence set off a chain of events that she still has not managed to control, no matter how hard she tries. Every time she thinks she has a handle on things, unexpected turns make her question everything, including herself. When Lupita witnesses the murder of a local politician whom she greatly admires, the ghosts of her past resurface as she tries to cope with the present. She quickly falls back into her old self-destructive habits and becomes a target of Mexico corrupt political machine. As the powers that be kick into high gear to ensure the truth remains hidden, Lupita finds solace in the purity of indigenous traditions. While she learns how to live simply, like her ancestors, she comes to understand herself and rediscovers light within a dark life. And if there is hope for Lupita redemption, perhaps there is hope for Mexico.

I have visited Iztapalapa, cerro de estrella (Star Hill), and seen their semana santa (Easter) festivities. But this is one of the worst novels I've ever read.

This author's unique and magical style takes on another personality in Pierced by the sun's Lupita. There is much Mexican folklore and tales of indigenous peoples. A nice little read with short chapters and large print. I found it enjoyable.
