This book was especially nourishing to the part of my being that loves to see through someone else's eyes. Not particularly extraordinary in terms of the writing, but the stories were priceless to me as someone who is interested in ESL education especially in the current political climate . It focuses on the immigrant stories of Latin Americans, but blows apart any notions that there is a singular story. The one thread is that each account speaks of the will to overcome adversity.

Have you ever been the type of person to judge a person on their race?Well I'm not that type of person,who will like on at somebody because of their race.You have to get know someone to judge them or know their background.But I'll say that Latinos had it little harder then most races.I say this because they had to cross the boarder line to get to the US and that was pretty dangerous of them.Some of them had made it across and some of them didn't.

Recommended by one of my ESL students who normally says he hates reading. Great, relatively easy read for my kids. Martin's story is especially poignant.
