Life or Death in Cusco
by Lisa Ray Turner and Blaine Ray
High school senior Elena García is vacationing in Cusco, Peru, with her mother. Everything that Elena experi- ences bugs her—the food, the people, the clothing, the altitude... She would rather have stayed home in Colorado. She is just starting to get interested in some things when her mother has an accident and suddenly Elena has to deal with the aftermath. The experi- ences that follow have a transforma- tive effect on Elena.
Life or Death in Cusco is loaded with cultural descriptions and refer- ences. The level of grammar is high. For 3rd- and 4th-year students.
