"'La frontera'...I heard it for the first time back in the late 1940s when Papa and Mama told me and Roberto, my older brother, that someday we would take a long trip north, cross la frontera, enter California, and leave our poverty behind." So begins this honest and powerful account of a family's journey to the fields of California -- to a life of constant moving, from strawberry fields to cotton fields, from tent cities to one-room shacks, from picking grapes to topping carrots and thinning lettuce. Seen through the eyes of a boy who longs for an education and the right to call one palce home, this is a story of survival, faith, and hope. It is a journey that will open readers' hearts and minds.

This book was a short tail that opened up my mind not only to the struggles that many face but how good my life is. I don't think I will ever look at fruit the same again!
I lied to my friend that I hate the book.😢 J.K. I could never do that I love ❤️ this book. No one could not at least like it.🙂🙂
Only one thing, it ends in a total cliffhanger
