Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who left the family to work in the United States. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village-they've all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men-her own "Siete Magnificos"-to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over.Filled with unforgettable characters and prose as radiant as the Sinaloan sun, Into the Beautiful North is the story of an irresistible young woman's quest to find herself on both sides of the fence.

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.
