When Estrella’s father has to leave because he wasn’t born here, like her, she misses him. And she wishes people knew the way it affects her.
At home. At school. Always. But a school wrapped around a hundred-year-old oak tree is the perfect place to share and listen. Some kids miss family, some kids are hungry, some kids live in shelters. But nobody is alone. This is a story about deportation, divided families, and the importance of community in the midst of uncertainty.
