Enrique's Journey (The Young Adult Adaptation)

The True Story of a Boy Determined to Reunite with His Mother


“A heartwrenching account. Provides a human face, both beautiful and scarred, for the undocumented. A must read." – Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Adapted for young people, this edition of Enrique’s Journey is written by Sonia Nazario and based on the adult book of the same name. It is the true story of Enrique, a teenager from Honduras, who sets out on a journey, braving hardship and peril, to find his mother, who had no choice but to leave him when he was a child and go to the United States in search of work. Enrique’s story will bring to light the daily struggles of migrants, legal and otherwise, and the complicated choices they face simply trying to survive and provide for the basic needs of their families. The issues seamlessly interwoven into this gripping nonfiction work for young people are perfect for common core discussion. Includes an 8-page photo insert as well as an epilogue that describes what has happened to Enrique and his family since the adult edition was published. Enrique's Journey is also available in a Spanish language edition, translated by Ana Ras.

"Nazario's straightforward . . . journalistic writing style largely serves the complex, sprawling story effectively. A valuable addition to young adult collections."—School Library Journal
"This powerfully written survival story personalizes the complicated, pervasive, and heart-wrenching debates about immigration and immigrants' rights and will certainly spark discussion in the classroom and at home."—Booklist
