Solito, Solita

Author(s): Steven Mayers, editor, Jonathan Freedman, editor, foreword by Javier Zamora
They are a mass migration of thousands, yet each one travels alone. Solito, Solita (Alone, Alone) is a collection of oral histories that tells--in their own words--the story of young refugees fleeing countries in Central America and traveling for hundreds of miles to seek safety and protection in the U.S. Fifteen narrators describe why they fled their homes, what happened on their dangerous journeys through Mexico, how they crossed the borders, and for some, their ongoing struggles to survive in the United States. These stories amplify the compelling voices of migrant youth, and bring to light the experiences of young people struggling for a better life across the border.
