520 |a Andrea Rodríguez is nine years old when her mother whisks her and her brother, Pablo, away from the Woronoco, a tiny New England factory town that is the only home they've ever known. With no plan and no money, she leaves them with family members in Puerto Rico and promises to return. In the years that follow, Andrea and Pablo are brought back to Woronoco, only to discover a rapidly changing town and an All-American culture they almost, but can never quite, fit into. As they navigate the social in-betweens, clashing family values and sometimes harsh realities of growing up, they must embrace both the triumphs and heartache that mark the journey to adulthood. A heartfelt, evocative portrait of another side of life in 1950s America, The Things We Didn't Know establishes Elba Iris Pérez as a sensational new literary voice.
