This stunning cover beckoned to me from the shelf at my favorite indie bookstore. I read the back blurb and knew I just had to own this title. I was not disappointed one bit.
The Border is a YA novel about three friends: Pato, Arbo, Marcos and Gladys who live in Northern Mexico where their worlds are shattered all within the same night. They are wanted for reasons they don’t understand. These friends just know they have to leave Mexico. Where will they go? When you are on the run with no time to plan your journey, what do you do? Follow these three on their journey.
If you loved Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe then The Border will become a new favorite. The author, Steve Schafer, has a similar intriguing writing style as Benjamin Alire Saenz. If you want to look deeper into the topic of immigration and see what it’s like on the other side this book will change your life.
