Publisher's Summary

At the age of 14, Francisco Jiménez, together with his older brother, Roberto, and his mother, are caught by la migra. Forced to leave their home, the entire family travels all night for 20 hours by bus, arriving at the U.S. and Mexican border in Nogales, Arizona. In the months and years that follow, Francisco, his mother and father, and his seven brothers and sister not only struggle to keep their family together, but also face crushing poverty, long hours of labor, and blatant prejudice.
How they sustain their hope, their goodheartedness, and tenacity is revealed in this moving sequel to The Circuit. Without bitterness or sentimentality, Francisco Jiménez finishes telling the story of his youth.

Continues The Life Of The Author

Great continuation of The Circuit. Interesting and engaging story especially for YA to learn how different groups of people have and continue to live in the US. The narrator is great and brings the great characters to life.

Amazing story. Worth reading

Finished the book in one day. Could not put it down. It is a very easy read but the story is so amazing and inspirational I have no words to express. I simply loved it.
