About the Book

Community Reads

Solito provides an intimate account of a harrowing journey where the young boy has many encounters which require miracles to leave him unharmed, yet he also receives gestures of love and human kindness from his fellow travelers when he truly needs it. Given the great dangers and obstacles this journey was unlikely to have a good outcome. But Javier Zamora makes it. And he does write his memoir.

At a time when answers to a worldwide migrant crisis are more pressing than ever but also intractable, we hope to engage in a conversation about a story that is part of our American past and future.
