    " The 7th graders at my school all read this book and we were lucky enough to have the author come talk with our students this year so that motivated me to read this book.(on a side note I also did a workshop this summer with his brother who is a State Supreme Court Justice here in CO). A compelling read and look at what people will do to come to the United States. "

    " Well-researched, didactic novel about the struggles of a young illegal immigrant. I read it with my boys and had wonderful conversations with them about the many facets of this complex subject. I'm so glad my 9-year-old's teacher assigned it. I'd never heard of it, but it should be required reading if you live in the Southwest. "
