Why are young people leaving their country to walk to the United States to seek a new, safe home? Over 100,000 such children have left Central America. This bilingual (English and Spanish) book of poetry helps us to understand why and what it is like to be them, describing the terrible process that leads young people to undertake the extreme hardships and risks involved in the journey to what they hope will be a new life of safety and opportunity. This book brings home their situation and will help young people who are living in safety to understand those who are not.
