Although the official month does not begin until September 15, I have a wide, varied lineup of books planned out and decided to get off to an early start. Winning the Pulitzer for feature reporting as well as additional awards for her work, Nazario details the complexity of decisions made by Central Americans when they choose to leave home for the luxuries of El Norte. One morning while preparing for work, Nazario happened to have a poignant conversation with her housekeeper about children. From this talk, Nazario found out that her Honduran native employee had not seen her four children in over ten years since she came to the United States in a search of a better life. Intrigued, the seeds were planted for Nazario to research why Central American women flock to the north, leaving their children behind with relatives, in hope that their children would eventually have a better life than the one left behind. Nazario decided to target a teenager who followed his mother north and investigate the pluses and minuses to life in Honduras and the United States. Her search lead her to seventeen year old Enrique and his mother Lourdes, who had already been in the States for over ten years. After meeting Enrique and Lourdes, the reporter decided to recreate his journey in order to bring to light the dangers of immigrating to the United States. Honduras is a country of few wealthy and many impoverished with the few controlling most of the nation's wealth. Healthy men leave for the north, leaving a population of women and their children. Most women in Lourdes' situation have little more than a fourth grade education because they are expected to work to help with their families' finances. Once these women come of age, they have few opportunities to work, either making tortillas, selling their crafts, or obtaining menial factory jobs. As a result, they can barely make ends meet and the cycle of poverty repeats itself.

The issues seamlessly interwoven into this gripping nonfiction work for young people are perfect for common core discussion. Includes an 8-page photo insert, as well as an epilogue that describes what has happened to Enrique and his family since the adult edition was published. Provides a human face, both beautiful and scarred, for the undocumented.
