NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALISTA lyrical and authentic book that recounts the story of a border-town family in Brownsville, Texas in the 1980''s, as each member of the family desperately tries to assimilate and escape life on the border to become "real" Americans, even at the expense of their shared family history. This is really un-mined territory in the memoir genre that gives in-depth insight into a previously unexplored corner of America.
