Neglected by her parents, nineteen-year-old Maya Nidal has grown up in Berkeley with her grandparents. Her grand­mother Nini is a force of nature, a woman whose formidable strength helped her build a new life after emigrating from Chile in 1973. Popo, Maya's grandfa­ther, is a gentle man whose solid, comforting presence helps calm the turbulence of Maya's adolescence.

When Popo dies of cancer, Maya goes completely off the rails, turning to drugs, alcohol, and petty crime in a downward spiral that eventually bottoms out in Las Vegas. Lost in a dangerous underworld, she is caught in the cross­hairs of warring forces. Her one chance for survival is Nini, who helps her escape to a remote island off the coast of Chile. Here Maya tries to make sense of the past, unravels myste­rious truths about life and about her family, and embarks on her greatest adventure: the journey into her own soul.

Editorial Reviews

"A riveting new novel.From the very start, Maya is in possession of a strong and authentic voice that guides the novel and gives it shape. She's tough and funny, smart and reliable, representing the same qualities evident in the grandparents who raised her-and in the author who brought this memorable tribe to the page." - Malena Watrous, San Francisco ChronicleWhat sets Maya's Notebook apart from the usual teen-in-trouble fare is the soaring redemption Maya finds in Chile. The village's peaceful pace is a tonic to both Maya and the reader.a captivating read by a great storyteller." - John Barron, Chicago Tribune"A brilliant storyteller, Allende creates a giant spiderweb of relationships; pull one thread and the whole structure shudders.fans of Allende and those new to her work will find a great deal of satisfaction in following the often-harrowing but always enlightening adventures of Maya Vidal." - Maribel Molyneaux, Philadelphia Inquirer
