El autor nos relata su vida como persona que no posee los documentos necesarios para residir o trabajar legalmente en los Estados Unidos.  Su historia le da nombre y cara a las miles de historias similares que se viven a diario no solo en los Estados Unidos pero en todos aquellos paises en el mundo a los que miles de immigrantes llegan en busca de una vida mejor y a menudo en busca de simplemente una vida.  El autor nos cuenta de sus miedos, suenos, fracasos y logros y lo hace de una manera natural y honesta que hace que el lector se involucre y sienta reales los sentimientos que el autor describe.  Este libro es una valiente narrativa por parte del autor que talvez pueda ayudarnos a comprender mas a las personas que viven estas experiencias.  I received a free copy via NetGalley.

This book is a fantastic read for anyone who is willing to take a step away from their own biases to listen to the stories of the human beings that are here and are undocumented. 

The author tells the story of his life, how he got here and what challenges he’s faced along the way. 

As someone who knows others that are here and considered “undocumented” even with them working to get their visas through the DREAMER program, it was heartbreaking to read about the fears present across the board. 

To me, this book makes me ask the questions: would I do the same for the chance at a better life? Would I be brave enough to do so?
