Summary
This bilingual (Spanish/English) collection of poems recreates the experiences of thousands of children from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico, who have been forced to abandon all they know because of poverty and violence in their home countries. The verses address the love they feel for their countries of origin, their fears about violent gangs, the loneliness that surfaces when friends leave, and their own fears about the upcoming journey
