   So well written
It's just that I wish anti-immigration militants had read this. I love the story of the teens. I love the multi-faceted perspectives of the story, he said. I really wish everyone understood what goes through to get to the U.S., Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's just that way, said Dr. Steve Peters, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. Leaving a home they love is the only chance to survive, Kerry said.

Do yourself a favor and read this already! If you feel like gratitude is something you don't practice or don't know what to be grateful for, then you are not alone. If you love the book, make sure you read it with an open mind and heart. The time has come to take advantage of this opportunity to build a truly global network of resellers. And when they arrive here thinking they are safe, think again. The cycle of suffering is not for the weak, it is for the desperate.
It's a book that should be read by everybody. The truth is needed more than ever, he said. I cannot understand how we can turn away our neighbors who are risking everything to try to come here, he said.
Sanchez put humanity back into the discussion of immigrants at the US-Mexico border. These are children, brave children fighting for their lives, the doctor said. It's just that they are our fellow passengers on this planet. My daughter recommended it to me and I'm so glad I read it.
   Should be required reading
This book is so much more important than some of the classics that high school students waste their time reading. Instead of "Lord of the Flies" or "A Separate Peace" or "Goodnight Moon" or "Harry Potter" or "Chronicles of Narnia" or "The Lord of the Flies" or "Chronicles of a Young Man" or "The Seven Deadly Sins" or "The Salem" or "Chronicles of a Young Detective" or "A Separate Peace" or "Chronicles of a Young Man" or "A Separate Peace" or "Chronicles of a Young Man" or "Chronicles of a Young Detective" or "Chronicles of a Young Man" or "Chronicles of a Young Detective" or "Chronicles of a Young Man" or " It is such an important book, because we who were lucky enough to be born in the US have NO idea how many kids die here. It broke my heart and opened my eyes at the same time.
   My thoughts
This book was amazing and talented writing but in the end it takes you no where with a flat pace the whole time and no end to the story we needed the end for, said Robin Mepham, Random House. It makes you need to know they make it but sucks that the ending is just flat and there is just meh when you waited to know the whole book you just read wasn't pointless.
   Heart-rending must-read for teachers of students from Central America
I originally read this novel when I was looking for something to use in a high school ESL class, but it's rife with potential PTSD triggers. The gripping fictional account offers eye-opening insights into why so many kids dream of crossing the border and the factors that push them to act on that dream in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. Realistically, I doubt that any one immigrant typically faces all of the daunting situations in which the characters find themselves during their trek from Guatemala, but reading it will awaken teachers, counselors, others to a better understanding of the many challenges many of our students are grappling with on a daily basis.
   A Tour de Force
In "The Passage," three Central American girls escape gang violence and find refuge in the United States. While it admirably captures the plight of thousands of travellers who risk their lives to reach the US, We Are Not from Here' is more than a historical document and more than a great young adult novel. In her book, "The Happy Couple: The Triumphant Story of Two Parents and Their Two Children," Kline explores parenthood, childhood, sibling relations and more. Using realistic realism to depict the landscapes, voices, and physical suffering of the migrant routes, Samudra captures the emotional and spiritual dimensions of the trauma, and the cosmic survival of the characters. Those characters will stay with you long after you finish the last page of your book.
   Riveting read!
Three children, aged 4, 5 and 6, who were smuggled out of Iraq in July 2001 and sent to India in search of a better life. It's just that we couldn't put it down.
