Journal Entry 1 by Queen72 from Hobbs, New Mexico USA on Tuesday, April 06, 2021
A wonderful story of a Mexican family who relocates to the United States for their injured daughter, Maribel. Maribel suffers from a brain injury and the family ends up living in Delaware in pursuit of a better education for Maribel. You really feel a sense of community within the apartment complex they reside in.
Mayor, whose family emigrated from Panama, befriends Maribel and both families develop a deep friendship. You'll also hear stories from the other immigrants and their reasons for pursuing a better life. This book was hopeful and heartbreaking.

I read this for 2021 PopSugar's reading challenge prompt: A book about a social justice issue.
