Summary:

At age nine, Reyna Grande braves the dangers of the U.S.-Mexico border, eager to reunite with her parents in Los Angeles. What she finds on the other side is a broken family and a society where she feels invisible and voiceless. She seeks solace in reading and writing as she struggles to please an abusive father, who, despite his flaws, pushes his children to realize the promise of the American dream. Striving to find her place in her new country and the adult world, Reyna encounters seemingly insurmountable obstacles, yet through her love or writing, she transforms herself from an undocumented immigrant to the first university graduate in her family, and ultimately, an award-winning author who "speaks for millions of immigrants whose voices have gone unheard." A Dream Called Home demonstrates how, by daring to pursue her dreams, Reyna was able to build the one thing she had always longed for--a home that would endure. --from back cover.
