La travesía de Enrique cuenta de un niño abandonado por su madre que se marcha a los Estados Unidos en busca de una mejor calidad de vida. Sonia Nazaro, galardonada con el Premio Pulitzer por esta historia real, nos presenta la realidad que viven los inmigrantes en su peregrinar para lograr el sueño americano.La historia comienza en Honduras y narra el viaje de Enrique en búsqueda de su madre a los Estados Unidos, sin dinero y sin ningún otro recurso que su fe en encontrarla. Ilumina lo dificil, cruel y despiadado que resulta el viaje de un inmigrante indocumentado, y más si es menor de edad. Detalladamente, relata todos los peligros que experimenta desde el buscar transporte y alimento, hasta evadir a los traficantes de personas, las bandas de pandilleros, y policías corruptos. Pero también describe la buena fortuna que corrió Enrique al encontrarse con cierta ayuda de desconocidos, ángeles en el camino.

    " Wonderful true story about riding the trains from Honduras north to the US to find his Mother who had left him to go work in the US. "

    " This is the story of one boy's journey from Central America through Mexico and illegally into the United States to find his mother. The author apparently rode the trains and trekked a similar path based on her interviews and research, which is impressive if a little scary. Based on my legal work with kids seeking immigration assistance, I know that this is only one of the many dangerous ways young people enter this country. So many of them, like Enrique, are seeking mothers who left them to try and find better wages in the United States. I appreciate that the story isn't dramatized--it's just told, and the reality is enough. For anyone who has an interest in this subject matter, I would highly recommend this book. "

    " The subject was fascinating and led to an interesting discussion in our book club. I believe the original newspaper series would have been a better read for me. A stronger editing was needed to turn this into a cohesive novel that wasn't so repetitive. The writing was choppy and stiff in many places but I'm still glad I stuck with it as it was an important book to have read. "
