Publisher Comments:

A la edad de catorce anos, Francisco Jiftrienez,/ junto con su madre y Roberto, su hermano mayor, es capturado por la migra. Obligada a abandonar su hogar en California, la familia entera viaja en autobus durante veinte horas, hasta llegar a la frontera mexicano-estadounidense en Nogales, Arizona,

En los meses y anos subsiguientes, Francisco, su madre y su padre, asi como su hermana y sus cuatro hermanos, no solo luchan para mantener junta a su familia, sino que enfrentan tambien una aplastante pobreza, largas horas de trabajo y flagrantes prejuicios racistas. La manera en que ellos logran mantener su esperanza, tenacidad y generosa bondad se revela en esta emocionante continuacion de Cajas de carton. Sin amargura ni sentimentalismo, Francisco Jimenez termina de contar la historia de su juventud. Una vez mas -sus palabras, sencillas pero potentes, permitiran a los lectores abrir sus mentes y sus corazones.
