Description
"When Rosayra 'Rosy' Pablo Cruz made the agonizing decision to seek asylum in the United States with two of her children, she knew the journey would be arduous, dangerous, and quite possibly deadly. But she had no choice: violence -- from gangs, from crime, from spiraling chaos -- was making daily life hell. Rosy knew her family's one chance at survival was to flee Guatemala and go north. After a brutal journey that left them dehydrated, exhausted, and nearly starved, Rosy and her two little boys arrived at the Arizona border. Almost immediately they were seized and forcibly separated by government officials under the Department of Homeland Security's new 'zero tolerance' policy. To her horror, Rosy discovered that her flight to safety had only just begun. [A] gripping account of the human cost of inhumane policies, [it] is also a paean to the unbreakable will of people united by true love, a sense of justice, and hope for a better future"--,Provided by publisher.
