Sometimes when you read border stories or immigration stories you get caught up in hopelessness, like you’re hearing about the aftermath of a tragedy. Between Us And Abuela is the kind of story that rejects tragedy with the force of the human spirit and goodwill. You close the pages believing we’re that much closer to all people being treated equally and that simple human goodness will win out. I love this book for its different angle and restorative value. ~ Reviewed by Dous Madany
