    BOOK REVIEW : SANTIAGO’S ROAD HOME BY ALEXANDRA DIAZ

    Santiago's Road Home is a heart wrenching realistic portrayal of several people who get caught at the Mexican-US border. The story helps us understand the struggles and extreme poverty the families are trying to escape. With hopes of new life and dreams of making decent money to support their family, the Mexicans try to cross the border illegally or in some cases request asylum at the border. Regardless of how they enter the families are separated by gender and babies, toddlers, young kids all get separated at the detention center.
