Title: Broken Borders
Author: Ayisha Blevins
Broken Borders is an outstanding book! Author Ayisha Blevins has done a wonderful job telling the story of a young teenage immingrant boy who struggles to provide for his family. His only goal in life is to protect his family and to assure their safety. He will not stop until he has accomplished his goal, knowing that the way to do so is to find a way to bring his family to America. This author shows that in reality there are true hardships that immigrants are faced with each and everyday. The story begins with his young life and takes the reader throughout his adolescent years and into his manhood. Within the pages of this book, is a story of both distress and growth. I loved this book and applaud her for writing it. She has done an amazing job making this story come alive through mere words. I recommend this book and look forward to reading more of her work.
