This is a really wonderful autobiography about crossing the Mexican border as a child and adjusting to an entirely new life and culture. If you're thinking of reading this, go for it, because you won't regret it.

This is a sad, but beautiful account of a real immigrant to the United States. Reyna is a phenomenal storyteller/biographer, and I loved that she put her struggles and successes as a writer into this story of family, hope, and friendship as well. This memoir is going to be great for those wanting to know what it's like to live in Mexico and work hard to survive and make the best life they can.
