Traveling north of the border in search of work, the men of Nayeli's Mexican village have nearly disappeared. Upon watching the 1960 film The Magnificent Seven, 19-year-old Nayeli decides to journey north herself and recruit her own band of seven men. With hopes that her 'siete magnificos' will not only repopulate the village, but also combat the ruthless bandidos threatening to seize control of the area, Nayeli abandons her job at the local taco shop and sets off into the beautiful north.

I had real trouble getting into this book, but I eventually (maybe even 2/3 of the way in) became charmed by it. It's sort of a fairy tale, actually, complete with happy ending, and a feisty heroine.

The Audiobook CD was okay – but not one of my favorites.

So beautifully written - unforgettable. I fell in love with all the characters and their journey.
