All the Stars Denied

(3) YA Estrella is fifteen in 1931 when she and her family are illegally rounded-up and "repatriated" to Mexico despite having lived, farmed, and maintained businesses in the U.S. for generations. In this timely historical novel, Estrella struggles to tame her anger, help her brother and mother survive, and find her father. Maintaining her own poetry-writing is Estrella's only salve through horrifying episodes of deprivation and injustice. Reading list. Glos.
