about

“Esta novela oportuna, arrancada de los titulares de los diarios, transmite un mensaje positivo acerca de la cooperación y la comprensión”.    
—School Library Journal

La familia de Mari se encuentra a la deriva, con una gran necesidad de trabajo, pero se ve forzada a esconderse por miedo a que las autoridades los devuelvan a México y a la pobreza.
La familia de Tyler lucha por salir adelante. Después de un accidente con un tractor que deja la granja que tienen en Vermont al borde de la quiebra, necesitan conseguir gente nueva que trabaje allí, de inmediato. 
Conocerse representa un golpe de suerte para ambas familias pues salvan la granja y Mari consigue un nuevo hogar, pero también surgen preguntas. A Tyler lo inquieta la presencia de los trabajadores mexicanos. ¿Son indocumentados? ¿Su propia familia infringió la ley al contratarlos? Mientras que Mari se siente dividida entre sus raíces mexicanas y su nueva vida en Vermont. Le preocupa dejar ir el pasado y hay pedacitos que no quiere soltar…
En una novela llena de esperanza pero sin respuestas fáciles, Julia Alvarez muestra cómo la amistad es capaz de traspasar fronteras.

************************************************

After Tyler's father is injured in a tractor accident, his family is forced to hire migrant Mexican workers to help save their Vermont farm from foreclosure. Tyler isn’t sure what to make of these workers. Are they undocumented?

Her family lives in constant fear of being discovered by the authorities and sent back to the poverty they left behind in Mexico. Can Tyler and Mari find a way to be friends despite their differences?

In a novel full of hope, but no easy answers, Julia Alvarez weaves a beautiful and timely story that will stay with readers long after they finish it.
