Voces Sin Fronteras / Our Stories Our Truth,

by Latin American Youth Center Writers

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.

Read this book if...

You want true stories from teen immigrants, as a mirror or window.

You want to read in Spanish over the summer.

You like comics as a medium.
