Product description


I've been waiting for this book for decades.

-- "Sandra Cisneros, USA Today bestselling author"

The charming story is beautifully written, and the characters are well developed. . . . West's novel is sweet and captivating.-- "School Library Journal"

In this poignant memoir about her childhood in Mexico, Reyna Grande skillfully depicts another side of the immigrant experience-the hardships and heartbreaks of the children who are left behind. Through her brutally honest firsthand account of growing up in Mexico without her parents, Grande sheds light on the often overlooked consequence of immigration-the disintegration of a family.

-- "Sonia Nazario, Pulitzer Prize winner, and author of Enrique's Journey"

A brutally honest book...akin to being the Angela's Ashes of the modern Mexican immigrant experience.

-- "Los Angeles Times"

Grande captivates and inspires in her memoir...Recounting her story without self-pity, she gracefully chronicles the painful results of a family shattered by repeated separations and traumas.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review) "

The poignant yet triumphant tale Grande tells of her childhood and eventual illegal immigration puts a face on issues that stir vehement debate.

-- "Booklist"

Grande consistently displays a fierce willingness to ask tough questions, accept startling answers, and candidly render emotional and physical violence.

-- "Kirkus Reviews" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

About the Author

Reyna Grande is the author of two award-winning novels. "Across a Hundred Mountains" received an American Book Award, and "Dancing with Butterflies" was the recipient of an International Latino Book Award. She lives in Los Angeles. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
