EXCELLENT BOOK!

by breedlc on Jul 23, 2009

I read this book as an undergraduate student as it was assigned to the students to reas as a requirement. From the beginning of the book, I loved it! The story of Enrique comes to live and I was able not only to read an excellent story but understand the horrible conditions of immigration. I had no idea these struggles existed and I was able to empathize with him and his story and truly understand how lucky I truly am!

Good read

Enrique's journey depicts how hard it is living in a foreign country and trying to establish a life in America. He struggles through so much to find his mother in America, with many failed attempts and setbacks.

Sober and tough

by Francesca on Aug 3, 2007

It's hard to know whom to admire most. Here you have the true story of an Honduran teen who tried eight times, through unspeakable suffering, to get to his mother in el Norde, and who, finally making it, ran into the knots and horrors of a divided family. There is also the way in which Sonia Nazario retraced for herself this horrendous journey. And there is her husband's understanding of her need to do it this way. She felt we need to know, and we do. We shouldn't live without knowing, but the knowing is not easy. Sonia asks throughout the tale whether it is worth it for a mother to leave her kids in order to make enough to put food into their mouths. Those of us who can walk into a supermarket and stock up for next week's meals, who can put on a parka or switch on the air-conditioning, are left with that nagging "Why me?" It is for some people a very hard question.
