Lupita Manana (Harper Trophy Books)by Patricia Beatty
Synopses & Reviews
Crossing over the border is a dangerous business...
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.
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.
