Description



About the Book



"As a young girl growing up in a small town in Honduras, Keyla imagined her own version of the American Dream. The reality involved dangers, suffering and sacrifice during an overland journey through Guatemala and Mexico, including arrests, deportations and kidnapping. For the first time, there is a first-person account from an undocumented immigrant from the Northern Triangle countries of Central America. Keyla tells her story in her own words, including what inspired her to embark on a dangerous journey, what the journey was like, and the years of struggle she endured after attempting to navigate the U.S. immigration system. She uses her own experience to demonstrate how this broken system is as reliant on circumstance and luck as any lottery. Keyla recounts the after-arrival struggle of an undocumented immigrant while also dealing with high school, young adulthood, and eventually having her own children. Keyla's story adds a voice and example of an undocumented immigrant to the conversation about immigration. Her work demonstrates that the blood, sweat, and tears expended in achieving one's American Dream are what unite all those striving for a better life, regardless of where they were born or how they got here."--

Keyla's story of crossing Guatemala and Mexico was nail-biting, gut wrenching, and inspiring all at the same time. It is amazing to hear directly from someone who came to this country as an unaccompanied minor. Definitely recommend!!
