Subject: "El Escape Cubano"

¡Hola!  I am planning to read this short novel with my Spanish Speaker level 2 students.  I would like to preface the reading with some context that shows why people would risk their family's lives, and their own to "escape" Cuba. I have to be careful because I live in Miami which is heavily Cuban.  Another teacher presented a lesson on Cuba, and a few parents sent emails in complaining of the history, so, I am looking for something adolescent-friendly, historically accurate and from the perspective of the Cubans who were determined to leave.  Does anyone have any suggestions, or resources that I can use?  The title of the book is "El Escape Cubano" by Mira Canion.
