Abstract:
Artemisia (Sia) Martinez's mother was deported to Mexico by ICE and disappeared in the Sonoran Desert trying to make it back to her American family; Sia believes that she was as-good-as murdered by ICE and the sheriff in their small Arizona town on the edge of the national park, and wants revenge against him and his son, Jeremy--but her search for the truth will uncover many more secrets than she counted on.

Arizona. It's been three years since the ICE raids, since Artemisia (Sia) Martinez's mother disappeared. Sia knows her mom must be dead, but she drives into the desert to light candles to guide her mom home. One night a blue-lit spacecraft crashes in front of Sia's car-- and it's carrying her mom, who is very much alive. Now she needs to save her mom from the armed, quite-possibly-ailen soldiers. -- adapted from jacket
