Comments: I read this over the holidays at the end of the year. It is a beautiful, poignant, story of a Mexican family who made it over the border to live a better life in the United States. I read it as a friend shared it as among her favorite books of the moment. Books have this magical ability to open your eyes to what someone else is going through.

This book does just that.
