Manuel - 12 years old leaves his small town in Mexico to try & reach his brother who has gone to LA. To do this he must join the "beast riders" ... the desperate migrants & refugees who climb to the top of the beast trains & hold on for dear life facing gangs, thieves, police ... as well as hunger, heat, fear. He is bullied & attacked & his journey takes him over two years & he is a changed person from it. ( )

RGG: Poetic representation of the violence of the cross-border journey and the stress of the undocumented experience. The rationale of the journey is a little vague, especially when Manuel decides to return home. Reading interest: 11-13.
