Book Description: She's been kidnapped and beaten, lives under surveillance, and can only get onlineâ€”in disguiseâ€”at tourist hotspots. She's a blogger, she's a Cuban, and she's a worldwide sensation.Yoani SĂˇnchez is an unusual dissident: no street protests, no attacks on big politicos, no calls for revolution. Rather, she produces a simple diary about what it means to live under the Castro regime: the chronic hunger and the difficulty of shopping; the art of repairing ancient appliances; and the struggles of living under a propaganda machine that pushes deep into public and private life. For these simple acts of truth-telling her life is one of constant threat. But she continues on, refusing to be silencedâ€”a living response to all who have ceased to believe in a future for Cuba.
