Through interviews and poignant contextualizing, Truax provides listeners with inspiring and heartwarming portraits of Mexican immigrants striving to do well, help others, and survive. They do so despite disregard, threats, and abuse by xenophobic bigots, inspired in part by racist comments and policies advocated by President Trump. Kyla Garcia's respectable delivery captures the narrative and instills some emphasis. However, she shines when providing voices to the people in the audiobook, delivering much more emotional range and drawing out the tension and challenges that these people live. In these moments, as she reads the quotes, listeners feel the power of this audiobook. L.E. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
