Summary
Publisher Annotation: Thirteen-year-old Manuelito is a gentle boy who lives with his family in a tiny village in the Guatemalan countryside. But life is far from idyllic: PACs- armed civil patrol are a constant presence in the streets, and terrifying memories of the country's war linger in the villagers- collective conscience. Things deteriorate further when government-backed drug gangs arrive and take control of the village. Fearing their son will be forced to join a gang, Manuelito's parents make the desperate decision to send him to live with his aunt in America. With just a bus ticket and a small amount of cash in hand, Manuelito begins his hazardous journey to Mexico, then the U.S., in search of asylum. But in the end, dangers such as the crooked- coyote- or human smuggle- his parents have entrusted their son's life to may be nothing compared to the risks Manuelito faces when he finally reaches America
