Summary
A chronicle of contemporary immigration follows the journey of a pair of teenaged twins from El Salvador who were forced by gang violence to seek safety and a better life in the United States
Summary
Author Lauren Markham was working as a counselor in an Oakland, California school district when she met identical twins Raúl and Ernesto Flores. The teenagers had fled El Salvador to escape deadly gang violence, knowing no English and unprepared for American society. Markham traces their harrowing journey to the U.S. and their struggles to survive in a strange land, illuminating the difficulties of undocumented minors; she also offers details on migrant shelters, the Texas border wall, and court proceedings in immigration cases. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
