At the age of fourteen, Francisco Jiménez, together with his older brother Roberto and his mother, are caught by la
migra. Forced to leave their home in California, the entire family travels all night for twenty hours by bus, arriving
at the U.S. and Mexican border in Nogales, Arizona. In the months and years that follow during the late 1950s-early
1960s, Francisco, his mother and father, and his seven brothers and sister not only struggle to keep their family
together, but also face crushing poverty, long hours of labor, and blatant prejudice. How they sustain their hope, their
good-heartedness, and tenacity is revealed in this moving, Pura Belpré Honor-winning sequel to The Circuit. Without
bitterness or sentimentality, Francisco Jiménez finishes telling the story of his youth.
