Nazario tells the true immigrant narrative of a Honduran boy’s journey to find his mother in America. The hard-to-believe story encompasses the narratives of many other immigrants into the U.S. This story brings up many great themes like parent-child conflict, family responsibility, separation, and assimilation into new cultures.

This book is good for older middle school and high school students. Many students can relate to Enrique’s immigration story.
