Author/narrator Estella Juarez takes listeners on the heartrending journey of her family's immigration struggle. Estella's mother arrived in the U.S. illegally when she was 18. When Estella was eight years old, her mother was deported back to Mexico. The family tried everything to get her back to the U.S. Estella wrote to newspapers, magazines, and even to the president of the United States in a desperate attempt to raise awareness. Now 13, Estella has a soft, feminine voice that reminds listeners of her youth. At times, her narration is stilted; nevertheless, her message is powerful, heartbreaking, and hopeful. The production is enhanced by soft music and sound effects. A note by the author delves into the details of the family's ordeal. A.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
