My local library was featuring books on immigrant stories and the title of this particular book caught my eye. With recent focus on immigration particularly in Central America, this book came at perfect timing.

At first, I thought the story centered mostly on two teenage kids and a possible budding romance. But like community, this story was connected to many different characters and how we are interlocked like fabric.

This is a simple, easy flowing read but it caught my heart and held it. The message at the end was timeless and very much needed.
