Product Description
Twelve-year-old Marisol is on a journey from Mexico to Texas to reunite with the parents she hasn't seen in years. She has spent most of her life with her grandmother, and would rather stay with her in Mexico. Instead, Marisol finds herself living with strangers: parents she barely remembers and a younger brother who resents her intrusion in their lives. And aside from the difficulties in learning English, making friends, and dealing with her brother's jealousy, Marisol must come to terms with feelings of rejection. How could her parents have left her in Mexico while making a new life for themselves in the U.S.? This intriguing novel for young adults explores a contemporary issue - children separated from their parents, who are searching for better lives.
