16 young people from Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean share their personal stories of hope, fear, sadness, and persistence as immigrants to the United States, providing a window to empathy in the current debate over immigration.
Shared as graphic memoirs, illustrated by other teen illustrators, each story is also presented in both English and Spanish side-by-side, and each memoir also has accompanying text.
