The "USA is bad" genre gets more play than the opportunity the USA actually, in fact, presented to the family in this work. Nothing was said, for example, in this memoir about the author being able to get an education, develop her obviously great writing talent in this great country, make money and get this book disseminated so widely.
I was just finishing this book at the time of the Haiti earthquakes (2010). Of course I had concern for the people of Haiti, but having just read this book helped me look with greater compassion on the plight of the people there. In general, it opened my eyes to the hardships and emotional difficulties of families being torn apart by poverty and immigration. The barriers and downright meanness of bureaucracy were sometimes hard to read. But learning how this family faced hardships and overcame the harsh realities in their lives should be a real inspiration to any reader.
