Children's Non-Fiction

Someone Like Me is the young readers edition of Julissa Arce's adult memoir My (Underground) American Dream. Born in Taxco, Mexico, Julissa Arce had to share her parents with America from the age of three. Her parents made trips to different parts of the United States to sell silver, often spending weeks and even months away. That is until one day they decided to bring Julissa to Texas to live with them. From then on, Julissa would be spend every day gripped with fear as she secretly lived as an undocumented immigrant.

This surprising, at times heart-wrenching, but always inspirational story takes readers deep into the little-understood world of a new generation of undocumented immigrants in the United States today--children who live next door, sit in your classrooms, or may even be one of your best friends.
