    Read this, you won’t regret it

    Karla Cornejo Villavicencio does a wonderful job of bringing honest stories of the complicated, three dimensional lives of undocumented Americans to the page. These stories deserve the telling she gave them, and deserve so much more as well. This book is humbling to anyone who has citizenship status, and is an important reminder or eye-opener to the stressors, barriers, and abuses that undocumented Americans face day in and day out. While the events many of the stories revolve around have rippling effects that are specific to undocumented Americans, they still ooze with relatable and heart-wrenching traumas and relationships, the strongest of which is always family ties. What would you do for your children? For your parents? She discusses trauma, mental health, and perseverance with determination and paints individuals with dignity and beauty in the face of a society that does everything it can to erase or demonize them. She also opens herself up to us, baring her scars and serving as an intermediary, sharing her own story and tying it to her interview subjects, and then using her searing anger and boundless compassion to tie it to each of us.
