The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez
Join the author in a discussion of this stunning novel of hopes and dreams, guilt and love—a book that offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be American. In it, fifteen-year-old Maribel struggles to leave Mexico and come north to the United States to receive the medical treatment needed after a terrible injury.
