ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A poignant novel of desperation, escape, and survival across the U.S.-Mexico border, inspired by current events.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque�a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

La traves�a llena de peligros, resiliencia, dolor y esperanza, de tres adolescentes guatemaltecos que cruzan la frontera entre M�xico y Estados Unidos.

Pulga lleva sus sue�os consigo. Chico carga el dolor de perder a su madre. Peque�a tiene su orgullo. Estos tres adolescentes se tienen el uno al otro y no se hacen ilusiones sobre la ciudad donde crecieron. A pesar del amor de su familia, las amenazas los acechan en cada esquina, y cuando son demasiado reales como para ignorarlas, el trio sabe que no tiene m�s opci�n que huir: de su pa�s, de sus familias, y de su querido hogar.

En su traves�a desde Guatemala hacia Estados Unidos a trav�s de M�xico, siguen la ruta de La Bestia, el peligroso tren de carga que los conducir� a una vida mejor, si tienen suficiente suerte como para sobrevivir el viaje. Sin nada mas que una mochila a sus espaldas, y la desesperaci�n que hace palpitar sus corazones, Pulga, Chico y Peque�a saben que no hay vuelta atr�s, sin importar los peligros desconocidos que les esperan.

En este impresionante retrato de tres vidas injustamente destrozadas, basado en hechos reales, Jenny Torres-Sanchez resalta el sacrificio de los migrantes en la frontera sur a trav�s de una narraci�n vivida y conmovedora.

La traves�a llena de peligros, resiliencia, dolor y esperanza, de tres adolescentes guatemaltecos que cruzan la frontera entre M�xico y Estados Unidos.

Pulga lleva sus sue�os consigo. Chico carga el dolor de perder a su madre. Peque�a tiene su orgullo. Estos tres adolescentes se tienen el uno al otro y no se hacen ilusiones sobre la ciudad donde crecieron. A pesar del amor de su familia, las amenazas los acechan en cada esquina, y cuando son demasiado reales como para ignorarlas, el trio sabe que no tiene m�s opci�n que huir: de su pa�s, de sus familias, y de su querido hogar.

En su traves�a desde Guatemala hacia Estados Unidos a trav�s de M�xico, siguen la ruta de La Bestia, el peligroso tren de carga que los conducir� a una vida mejor, si tienen suficiente suerte como para sobrevivir el viaje. Sin nada mas que una mochila a sus espaldas, y la desesperaci�n que hace palpitar sus corazones, Pulga, Chico y Peque�a saben que no hay vuelta atr�s, sin importar los peligros desconocidos que les esperan.

En este impresionante retrato de tres vidas injustamente destrozadas, basado en hechos reales, Jenny Torres-Sanchez resalta el sacrificio de los migrantes en la frontera sur a trav�s de una narraci�n vivida y conmovedora.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque�a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque�a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque�a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque�a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Estos tres adolescentes se tienen el uno al otro y no se hacen ilusiones sobre la ciudad donde crecieron. A pesar del amor de su familia, las amenazas los acechan en cada esquina, y cuando son demasiado reales como para ignorarlas, el trio sabe que no tiene m�s opci�n que huir: de su pa�s, de sus familias, y de su querido hogar.

En su traves�a desde Guatemala hacia Estados Unidos a trav�s de M�xico, siguen la ruta de La Bestia, el peligroso tren de carga que los conducir� a una vida mejor, si tienen suficiente suerte como para sobrevivir el viaje. Sin nada mas que una mochila a sus espaldas, y la desesperaci�n que hace palpitar sus corazones, Pulga, Chico y Peque�a saben que no hay vuelta atr�s, sin importar los peligros desconocidos que les esperan.

En este impresionante retrato de tres vidas injustamente destrozadas, basado en hechos reales, Jenny Torres-Sanchez resalta el sacrificio de los migrantes en la frontera sur a trav�s de una narraci�n vivida y conmovedora.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque�a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque�a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Peque�a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque�a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.

La traves�a llena de peligros, resiliencia, dolor y esperanza, de tres adolescentes guatemaltecos que cruzan la frontera entre M�xico y Estados Unidos.

Pulga lleva sus sue�os consigo. Chico carga el dolor de perder a su madre. Peque�a tiene su orgullo. Estos tres adolescentes se tienen el uno al otro y no se hacen ilusiones sobre la ciudad donde crecieron. A pesar del amor de su familia, las amenazas los acechan en cada esquina, y cuando son demasiado reales como para ignorarlas, el trio sabe que no tiene m�s opci�n que huir: de su pa�s, de sus familias, y de su querido hogar.

Chico has his grief.
Peque�a has her pride.

And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.

Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life--if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Peque�a know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them. And the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

In this striking portrait of lives torn apart, the plight of migrants at the U.S. southern border is brought to light through poignant, vivid storytelling. Inspired by current events, We Are Not From Here is an epic journey of danger, resilience, heartache, and hope.
UNO DE LOS MEJORES LIBROS DE FICCI�N JUVENIL DEL 2021 SEG�N EL YOUNG ADULT LIBRARY SERVICES ASSOCIATION (YALSA)

La traves�a llena de peligros, resiliencia, dolor y esperanza, de tres adolescentes guatemaltecos que cruzan la frontera entre M�xico y Estados Unidos.

Pulga lleva sus sue�os consigo. Chico carga el dolor de perder a su madre. Peque�a tiene su orgullo. Estos tres adolescentes se tienen el uno al otro y no se hacen ilusiones sobre la ciudad donde crecieron. A pesar del amor de su familia, las amenazas los acechan en cada esquina, y cuando son demasiado reales como para ignorarlas, el trio sabe que no tiene m�s opci�n que huir: de su pa�s, de sus familias, y de su querido hogar.

En su traves�a desde Guatemala hacia Estados Unidos a trav�s de M�xico, siguen la ruta de La Bestia, el peligroso tren de carga que los conducir� a una vida mejor, si tienen suficiente suerte como para sobrevivir el viaje. Sin nada mas que una mochila a sus espaldas, y la desesperaci�n que hace palpitar sus corazones, Pulga, Chico y Peque�a saben que no hay vuelta atr�s, sin importar los peligros desconocidos que les esperan.

En este impresionante retrato de tres vidas injustamente destrozadas, basado en hechos reales, Jenny Torres-Sanchez resalta el sacrificio de los migrantes en la frontera sur a trav�s de una narraci�n vivida y conmovedora.
