La linea, by Ann Jaramillo
I loved the book. However, I was dissapointed with the ending. I believe the endings makes the reader believe that in America all is acheivable. This concept of "if you work hard, you'll be successful" is not the reality for people like Miguel and Elena. Crossing the border with all the dangers that the experience is only the begining of a life of discrimination and difficulties that will forever affect them as illegal immigrants.
