I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a good book to read to see the experience or point of view of how hard it is to be a family that is split apart and in different countries and is trying to be reunited. ( )

This story is about a young boy and his sister who decide they need to cross the border to find their parents in the U.S. They travel a very dangerous journey riding a train and meeting new people who they do not know they can trust. This was an easy read and was relatively quick. I think this story is a good suspenseful introduction into larger chapter books. ( )

This book is about a young boys journey to cross the border and be reunited with his parents. His sister ends up secretly tagging along and he now responsible for her too. Along the way the face many obstacles and realize what a hard journey this really is.

This book is super powerful, especially in today's day and age. I think it's important to read this book so that what we see on the news isn't all we know about immigrants.

Novel. This book is about a a brother and sister named Miguel and Elena. They want to go to their parents who are in California but Miguel and Elena are in Mexico. So they need to cross the border where they need to evade border patrol, robbers and other dangers they cross on their journey. It is a long and scary journey that is filled with many dangers. However, at the end they end up reuniting with their parents. ( )

I read this book as part of a required assignment. I did not know much about this book prior to reading it for an assignment, but I am glad I had the opportunity to read it. This book is about a young boy who made the brave journey to la linea or the US- Mexico border. He thought he was alone, but his sister ended up tagging along with him on this journey. He then was responsible for the safety of him and his sister along this journey. This book was eye opening for me to read because Miguel, the main character in this story ohs only 15. At the age of 15 he is having to be responsible for the lives of himself and his little sister. As I was reading this, I could not imagine being in this situation or having to make this potentially deadly journey. Overall, this book was insightful for me to read, but I could not imagine having to make a potentially dangerous or deadly journey in order to achieve a better life. ( )
