Shayda | 1 comments This book is about immigrants. I do not know the author. It has a red cover with a young teenage boys shadow in the front cover as well. This book is about him crossing the border, him and his friends have to get on a train to come to the United States. I think they called the train "beast" or "la bestia". I cant remember much I didn't finish reading it.

This probably isn't the book, but thought I'd mention The Beast: Riding the Rails and Dodging Narcos on the Migrant Trail by Oscar Martinez.

Is this a fiction or non-fiction book for teens? Around what year did you read it?
