    Mirta Ojito's Cuban memoir
      In the spring of 1980, when Fidel Castro decided to rid Cuba of Cubans he disliked, Mirta Ojito was just 16. With her family, she ended up aboard the Mañana on her way toward Key West, Florida. Ojito is not only a Marielito, she is a professional journalist. There exists no other person as qualified, both privately and publicly, to cover the Mariel exodus.
