Lyhyt elämäkerta
Ann Jaramillo has been a middle school teacher in Salinas, California since 1971. She has taught new immigrant arrival teenagers from Mexico and students of Mexican descent born in Salinas, California. She is proud to be married to her husband, Luis, an attorney representing migrant farmworkers, for thirty-eight years. (Don’t get her started talking about her writer son Luis and his partner Matthew, or alternative-energy son Mateo and wife Virginia or most of all, new granddaughter, Carolina Clover.) Her family is famously all about words, from Grandma Petie who could recite poems she had memorized sixty years before, and composed many herself, to Grandma Dorie, champion Scrabble player and poet herself. She wants all young people to know and feel the power of words to both change lives and the world.

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.
