Thirteen-year-old Bella wants to be a lector just like her grandfather. All day long he sits on a special platform in the cigar factory in Ybor City, Florida, reading books, newspapers, and current events to workers as they roll the cigars.

When the factory workers clash with the owners, violence erupts and the lectors start losing their jobs. And then there's the radio. Could this small device replace the lector? It's up to Bella to determine her future and help her people preserve their history. From the Hardcover edition.
