Brought back memories

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It brought back memories of my childhood as I am also a Pedro Pan immigrant. It was written excellently. This book would be interesting to anyone who loves read a quick paced adventure. Five stars.

It is real

This is real! Immigration for what ever need or want still mirrors hardship! The triumph is strong! As a mother of two boys I could never imagine the pain of making such a decision. As a social worker I respect the perils of all individuals who come to this country to make it great!
