Adan Rocha narrates this timely young adult audiobook, which sheds light on the U.S.-Mexico border crisis. Mateo and Sophie Garcia are the children of undocumented Mexican immigrants. The Garcias are living a quiet life in America when, suddenly, the parents are taken by ICE officers, who plan to deport them. Mateo and Sophie must forge ahead without the guidance of their Ma and Pa. Rocha's voice is pleasant and flexible enough to capture Mateo's innocent character and his father's stern tone. However, Rocha's voice shows its limits in the unremarkable portrayals of young female characters such as Sophie and Mateo's friend, Kimmie. Nonetheless, Rocha's overall performance takes this dramatic audiobook to the next level. A.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
