This story is about a young boy and his sister who decide they need to cross the border to find their parents in the U.S. They travel a very dangerous journey riding a train and meeting new people who they do not know they can trust. This was an easy read and was relatively quick. I think this story is a good suspenseful introduction into larger chapter books. ( )

This book is about a young boys journey to cross the border and be reunited with his parents. His sister ends up secretly tagging along and he now responsible for her too. Along the way the face many obstacles and realize what a hard journey this really is.

This book is super powerful, especially in today's day and age. I think it's important to read this book so that what we see on the news isn't all we know about immigrants.

I read this book as part of a required assignment. I did not know much about this book prior to reading it for an assignment, but I am glad I had the opportunity to read it. This book is about a young boy who made the brave journey to la linea or the US- Mexico border. He thought he was alone, but his sister ended up tagging along with him on this journey. He then was responsible for the safety of him and his sister along this journey. This book was eye opening for me to read because Miguel, the main character in this story ohs only 15. At the age of 15 he is having to be responsible for the lives of himself and his little sister. As I was reading this, I could not imagine being in this situation or having to make this potentially deadly journey. Overall, this book was insightful for me to read, but I could not imagine having to make a potentially dangerous or deadly journey in order to achieve a better life. ( )

This novel is about a young boy named Miguel. On his fifteenth birthday, he receives a letter from his father that he wants Miguel to join his mother and him in California. Miguel and his younger sister, Elena have grown up the past several years on the rancho with their Abuelita since their parents crossed la linea illegally to look for more work and a better life. Miguel and Elena’s parents promised to return for them someday and it is finally Miguel’s time. All the plans are in order, except unexpectedly, Elena decides to follow on the journey of crossing the border. Now they experience several obstacles and dangers together and realize quickly how hard the treck across the desert is. After all their troubles and fighting so hard, they finally reach their destination and reunite with their parents.
I really enjoyed reading this novel for many reasons. Ann Jaramillo wrote this fictional story based off of some of her student's experiences with being immigrants and crossing the border. I was engaged in the story the entire time and immediately had to read about the author and her story behind the book. I thought it was really interesting that she teaches English as a Second Language to middle schoolers and that she was able to create a story that reflected on her student’s lives and experiences. Although I wasn’t able to connect with everything in the story, I was able to feel the emotion, desperation, desire, loyalty, and betrayal that the characters did. I personally learned so much about this great book and think it is one that should definitely be read in the classroom. There is a cultural representation throughout and exposes readers to some of the realistic things happening in our world. It would be great for students because not only does it allow them to see more than just the political side of immigration, but also ties into either a window or mirror experience for them.
