The book, Tell Me How It Ends by Valeria Luiselli, offers a compelling first hand account of the daunting legal process faced by Central American unaccompanied children in the United States.
Ms. Luiselli does an excellent job weaving facts into the story, therefore helping the reader understand the monumental hurdle the migrant children must navigate. As a volunteer translator, she is able to share their heartbreaking stories with compassion and humility.
The book is powerful and thought provoking. While the personal stories offer a glimpse of a world that many of us could never imagine, let alone survive without losing our hope and humanity.
Tell Me How It Ends helped me understand why children are fleeing their home countries. The book helps to educate the reader on the on-going exodus out of Central America.
As the immigration debate rages on in the United States and the government is partially shut down due to the lack of funding for President Trump’s border wall, Tell Me How It Ends is a must read to help us understand the ongoing immigration crisis.
Thank you for reading!
