Review:

I can’t sing the praises of this book enough.  It’s written so that it feels like you’re listening to your friend tell you a story filled with humor and emotion.  I learned so much about the immigration process and all of the pitfalls that can happen to families looking for safety and a better life.  At this time, it is the perfect book for young and old alike.  Let’s start trying to understand one another better.  Highly recommended!
