The Notebook Keeper: A Story of Kindness from the Border
|Publisher||Random House Studio|
Noemi and Mamá flee their home in Mexico, and head for the U.S. border. There, they look for "The Notebook Keeper"-- the person in charge of a ledger for those waiting to cross, and they add their names to the book. As the days turn into weeks, and hope dwindles, the little girl looks for empathy and kindness around her-- and inside herself. One day, when the Notebook Keeper's own name is called to cross, Noemi and her Mamá are chosen, for the generosity in their hearts, to take her place.
