The title of the book comes from a passage in Chapter 26. The passage reads as follows:
- "You smell like cinnamon and you have the right color. Cinnamon skin."
- "My God, McGee, can't you come up with something more original."
- "I thought it was."
- She laughed. "It's a song, you idiot. Piel Canela: Cinnamon Skin. They sing it all over Mexico. ..."
