Reviews

"A gripping contemporary survival adventure, this spare first novel is also a heart-wrenching family story of courage, betrayal, and love." --Booklist, Starred Review

"Jaramillo's first novel is convincing and effective." --The Horn Book Magazine

"A nail-biting real-life adventure." --Kirkus Reviews

"This well-written account of the perils of illegal border crossing would make a worthwhile read for students studying history, geography, or cultures and is a solid recommendation for both school and public libraries." --Voices of Youth Advocates

"The author creates a mood of desperation and anxiety as the story unfolds and Miguel and Elena discover that crossing la línea will forever change the way they look at themselves and the world." --School Library Journal
