Velorio

Camila is haunted by the death of her sister, Marisol, who was caught by a mudslide during the huracรกn. Unable to part with Marisol, Camila carries her through town, past the churchyard, and, eventually, to the supposed utopia of Memoria. 
Urayoรกn, the idealistic, yet troubled cult leader of Memoria, has a vision for this new society, one that in his eyes is peaceful and democratic. The paradise he preaches lures in the young, including Bayfish, a boy on the cusp of manhood, and Morivivi, a woman whose outward toughness belies an inner tenderness for her friends. But as the different members of Memoria navigate Urayoรกnโ€™s fiery rise, they will need to confront his violent authoritarian impulses in order to find a way to reclaim their home.
Velorioโ€”meaning โ€œwakeโ€โ€”is a story of strength, resilience, and hope; a tale of peril and possibility buoyed by the deeply held belief in a peopleโ€™s ability to unite against those corrupted by power.

I was not expecting this story at all.
Velorio explores the trauma and aftermath of Hurricane Maria, following different characters tied together by the tragedy. A story of survival told in a really unique way.
