American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins
This is my favorite book of the YEAR!!! Amazing and important, everyone should read this book. I loved the main character, a middle class woman from Acapulco who owned a little bookstore in that resort community. She is thrown into this crazy dangerous quest to reach El Norte with her young son in-tow. She does an amazing job helping us relate deeply with the migrant experience and the Why of the mass migration that is happening now. I hope this book gets the press and readership it deserves!!
