Reviews

"Based on an impressive ethnographic study carried out over twelve years, the book brings to light the rich and detailed voices and experiences of the 1.5 generation."--NACLA: Report on the Americas
"A must-read... This book is a critical addition to blossoming research on the undocumented 1.5-generation."--City & Society
"This book expertly sheds light on the US governments' failure to devise effective and ethical immigration policies. . . . Through the narratives of young, undocumented adults, Gonzales addresses the burden of their illegality and aims to affirm not only the need to consider their status but also the need for the government to implement legislation that will allow them to participate in society."--Journal of Youth and Adolescence
