Summary

English edition: WE ARE NOT FROM HERE, by Jenny Torres Sanchez [Philomel Books, 5/19/2020]

A poignant novel following three Guatemalan teens along a journey of desperation, escape, and survival across the U.S.-Mexico border, inspired by current events.


Pulga has his dreams. Chico has his grief. Pequeña has her pride. And these three teens have one another. But none of them harbor any illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their single mothers, and from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Pequeña know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.
