More About The Distance Between Us by Reyna Grande
 
 
 
Overview
A brutally honest book akin to being the "Angela s Ashes" of the modern Mexican immigrant experience ("Los Angeles Times").
Reyna Grande vividly brings to life her tumultuous early years in this compelling . . . unvarnished, resonant ("BookPage") story of a childhood spent torn between two parents and two countries. As her parents make the dangerous trek across the Mexican border to El Otro Lado (The Other Side) in pursuit of the American dream, Reyna and her siblings are forced into the already overburdened household of their stern grandmother. When their mother at last returns, Reyna prepares for her own journey to El Otro Lado to live with the man who has haunted her imagination for years, her long-absent father.
Funny, heartbreaking, and lyrical, "The Distance Between Us "poignantly captures the confusion and contradictions of childhood, reminding us that the joys and sorrows we experience are imprinted on the heart forever, calling out to us of those places we first called home."
