Description

'Puts a human face to the story of undocumented youth desperately seeking their dreams in America.

This one's going to haunt me for a long time' Jodi PicoultA beautiful and heartrending novel about motherhood, resilience, and faith-a ripped-from-the-headlines story of two families on both sides of the American border. Carla is a strong-willed young girl who's had to grow up fast, acting as caretaker to her six-year-old brother Junior.

Years ago, her mother left the family behind in Honduras to make the arduous, illegal journey to Texas.

But when Carla's grandmother dies and violence in the city escalates, Carla takes fate into her own hands-and with Junior, she joins the thousands of children making their way across Mexico to America, facing great peril for the chance at a better life. Alice and her husband, Jake, own a barbecue restaurant in Austin, Texas.

Hardworking and popular in their community, they have a loving marriage and thriving business, but Alice still feels that something is missing, lying just beyond reach.
