"These are stories of young lives of tragedy, resilience, and transformation that seem incredible yet are heartbreakingly common. Revealing that the myth of an American Dream reserved for the few." --Christina Romero senior staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society and advisor to the Juvenile Rights Practice on immigration matters. "Diligently researched and deeply moving, shining a light on the often-overlooked human side of America's asylum and immigration system."--Danica Novgorodoff, illustrator of Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds "Please read this book. It shows us in painful and beautiful detail what it really means if we close our doors to even one person."--Zach Weinersmith, author of New York Times bestseller Soonish "This is a narrative we desperately need. Recentering the story of migration to the US away from politics and onto the intimate lives of these vulnerable and courageous teen refugees and their families. A powerful and meaningful read no one should miss!"--Pamela Jackson, Comic Arts Curator at San Diego State University "Here we see the full, devastating power of comics. These images and stories will remain with me, and with readers, longer after they put the book down." --Hope Larson, author of All Summer Long "An essential read for the modern age, shining a light on the often-unseen challenges of child migrants."--Myfanwy Tristram, editor of Draw the Line
