THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US
BY REYNA GRANDE
Through her brutally honest firsthand account of growing up in Mexico without her parents, Grande sheds light on the often overlooked consequence of immigration—the disintegration of a family.”
—Sonia Nazario, Pulitzer Prize winner, and author of Enrique’s Journey
Trafficking, abuse, violence. These don’t happen in isolation.
Vulnerable communities are made vulnerable by the choices we all make, by the actions we take (or don’t take), and by the policies we vote for. With undocumented children being particularly vulnerable to trafficking, it’s crucial we all come to understand the immigrant experience.
Reyna Grande’s upcoming book The Distance Between Us looks set to be an important contribution to that process.
