This is children’s book about immigration in the US. I liked it and thought it handled a lot of difficult issues well (although most of the bad guys were stereotypically bad, or turned out to be Republicans, even if they were somewhat redeemed). I did think the story line with the mother was a touch over the top; she could have had fewer awful things happen to her without losing anything from the story. But I’m always griping about that in books. And no matter what, this is a good book for children about immigration.
