Enrique's Journey:The True Story of a Boy Determined to Reunite With His Mother

Sonia Nazario

Nazario's critically acclaimed book Enrique's Journey has been newly adapted for young adults. It is the heartbreaking true story of a teenager who sets out on a journey from Honduras to the United States to find the mother who left when he was 5. It has been updated to include the increased danger of gang violence related to drug trafficking and recent changes in the economic and political climates of the U.S., Mexico and Honduras. The epilogue allows readers to follow the family's tragedies and triumphs since the book's original publication because their journey did not end when they reached the United States.
