Across A Hundred Mountains, by Reyna Grande
The stark realism of this story of a young girl traveling from Mexico to the United States to find her father can perhaps be credited to to author Grande’s firsthand experience: she entered the United States from Mexico as an undocumented immigrant to join her parents in 1985 when she was 10 years old. The tale of Juana’s crossing, told in spare, clear prose, won Grande an American Book Award.
