This is the story of how Francisco coped with poverty, with his guilt over leaving his family financially strapped, with his self-doubt about succeeding academically, and with separation. Once again his telling is honest, true, and inspiring.

Excellent for English learners
Audio is clear, with believable emotion in the narrator's voice. Pronunciations of Spanish words and names sound authentic, which helps the reader feel like Jimenez could be the one speaking. Although anyone could relate to the themes of perseverance and success through hard work, immigrants dreaming of college will find it particularly relevant. Enjoyable!

The autobiography of Francisco Jimenez has inspired me for a decade. I love to read and listen to his life because I can identify periods of my life with his life. This book can inspire and encourage mexican immigrant students.
