Front Cover

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Oct 1, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 208 pages
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.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Why would we hand every student the same device, especially when that device may not be relevant in six months or a year? Our BYOD program is the catalyst to the digital literacy that the future requires. We invite you to use a range of digital technologies to evaluate, create and distribute information.
