"The book tells the harrowing story of Frank’s attempt at escape and the people around him. It’s a riveting story that gives you a look into what life in Cuba became under Fidel Castro’s rule. It’s the story of a country Christopher Columbus called 'The most beautiful land that human eyes had ever seen.'

I would recommend this true-life novel, and am looking forward to the author’s next effort."

“The Boy Who Said No is a beautifully written story of love, friendship and adventure. The descriptions of Cuban life under Fidel Castro, as seen through the eyes of a maturing young man, are vivid and paint a clear picture of the beauty of the country, and the desperation of her people. The drama of the challenges Frank Mederos faced in his attempts to escape Cuba resonates with an underlying theme of human experience that transcends culture, country and politics. Patti Sheehy captures the passion and spirit of the times and brings it to life.”
