About the book
In this book, a young immigrant woman from the Mexican state of Chiapas shares the story of how, as a young girl, she was brought to North Carolina by her mother so the family could be reunited. In these pages she bares her soul to the reader. We feel her innocence as a young child, her fear as she and her family make their difficult journey, and her mixed emotions as she begins her new life in the shadows, undocumented, yet in a land she is coming to feel her own.
