Extract of sample "Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario"

Download file to see previous pages I’ve heard the terrific statistics telling how many people crossed the USA boundary, but that people were only numbers for me. Earlier I never thought about the fact that those people who immigrate to the USA leave their families on the other side of the boundary. I thought of them as about people who just can’t find a job or don’t want to live in their own country and therefore come to the USA. While reading this book I got deep into the inner world of a boy, whose mother left him in Honduras and went far away to make his and her life better. The move allows her to send money back home to Enrique, due to that he can go to school. Mother promised Enrique that she will return quickly. But she had troubles in America.

Unfortunately, not all the officials and parties are ready to help the immigrants.
The book Enriques Journey helped me to open my eyes and see the other side of both immigrant’s and my own worlds. They differ a lot.

I always knew that there are some people who hate and even are afraid of those who are unlike them.  Our world knows racism, Nazism and many other variants of hating other people, but I’ve never thought that such a thing could happen in the USA although in a much milder form. ...Download file to see next pagesRead More
