Read full description of the books:Wow! This book was intense and a lot of things were happening with the characters. I wanted to keep finding out what was going to happen with Naomi. The main character, Naomi has a strong bond with her disabled brother and grandmother. The two children have been living with the grandmother for a long time. One day, her alcoholic mom reappears after seven years with her boyfriend. The mother was hoping to take Naomi and not the brother to collect welfare. The grandmother was very upset to hear about this and made sure it didn't happen. The family decides to drive across the border to Mexico to search for the father. After reading this story, I was disgusted with the mother. Whatever happen to being a good role model to your children? The mother was buying all these ravishing gifts, such as, bikes and fancy clothes. What these kids need is not gifts but LOVE from their MOTHER! I couldn't believe she had put these kids through this! The grandmother was the best primary guardian for these children. The grandmother was loving and caring and protected the children from bad things happening to them. I was very proud of Naomi for standing up for herself to her mother and the court.
Overall I enjoyed this story because as a reader I was able to share Naomi's fear about her future. As I was reading, I imagined myself as Naomi. I felt the pain that she had to go through with her mother. I thought about how I would feel if I didn't see my mother in seven years. Naomi had real changed and grew to understand herself better.
