From the back:

"With stolen cash and tickets booked through a shady travel agency, Marlon Cruz and his girlfriend, Reina, have smuggled themselves out of Colombia and into the United States. But on their first night in New York City, they lose each other, and Marlon finds himself cast into the city's immigrant underworld, alone. As he searches for Reina in the bars and boarding houses where illegals congregate, the story of their harrowing cross over the border is retold, mapping the arc of a relationship that has transformed him into a reluctant immigrant. Paradise Travel is a gripping story of love and migration."

Excellent storytelling, shifting back and forth in time without confusing the reader. An engaging and heartbreaking, both entertaining and murky glimpse into the life of illegal immigrants. Recommended reading!
