#Honduras
review

I cried. So many tears. A boy's tenacity, desperation, and love for his family is written so Americans can sense what these young refugees endure. The hardships are unbelievable - being killed or damaged from trains, exploited by gangs all through Mexico, rapes, separated from mothers who work in America so the children can LIVE, getting caught and not giving up. I'm so glad I read this book. Pulitzer Prize Winner

It‘s really difficult to put this book down. I had to buy my own copy.

Remember that one time I went to a book sale and showed some restraint? What, you mean this is the first time ever? Oh, right. 😀📚

After listening to Chapter 1, the Honduras rainforest sounds terrifying. 🐍🦂🕷🐆☠

1) Lost City of the Monkey God was scientific and exciting. That's a winning combo in my book!
2) Sissy. Because my sibling couldn't pronounce my real name.
3) Ohh, tough choice! Mozzarella sticks are amazing, but it's hard to beat crispy onion rings.
4) More hiking! I've spent the week touring national parks and I'm not done yet!
5) Just two. ☹ "Es ist Freitag" and "it's Friday!"

So, I originally picked this up to be polite as a new friend had strongly recommended it.Good grief, I had no idea adventures like this could happen in the real world! Douglas Preston was part of an expedition to search for a fabled "lost city" in Honduras back in 2015. Preston's story is chock full of huge snakes, infectious diseases, and well- researched history in a part of the world which I know little about.

AbigailDays Fair warning, it is not for the faint of heart. There are blunt discussions of tropical diseases, poisonous snake bites, and other slightly gruesome topics 2mo

Read this book if you are interested in learning more about the "migrant crisis" from the perspective of a documented immigrant who volunteers/helps undocumented immigrants from Central America & Mexico. As is Luiselli's style, this book is thoughtful and honest.

When your current nonfiction book is foreworded by someone who lives in your home county, even though it's about the US-Mexican border... 😍😍😍
