After being sent to a group home for a crime that he has done, Miguel starts his story through journal writing. "We Were Here" is an inside look of a young boy who has trouble excepting what he has done wrong. Even after escaping the group home with two other boys to go to Mexico, Miguel continues to write in his journal. His story is sad and funny. Miguel is both interesting and complex. Great book for reluctant readers.
