Publisher Comments:

Crossing over the border is a dangerous business...

...But Lupita must cross from Mexico to America. After her father dies in a fishing boat accident in the seas near their small Mexican village, Lupita's family is left in poverty. Lupita and her big brother, Salvador, must smuggle themselves into the United States to earn money to support their mother and young siblings.

America is not the land of opportunity they had hoped. A new language, hard labor, and the constant threat of la migra — the immigration police--make every day a difficult challenge. But for feisty Lupita, there is always hope for a better manana — tomorrow.

Synopsis:

After her father is killed in a fishing accident in the seas near their small Mexican village, Lupita's mother makes a difficult decision. Lupita and her big brother, Salvador, must try to cross the border into America to earn money to support their young brothers and sisters.
