#wanderingjune @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB A young girl who is forced to leave home dreams of the life she had #downinmexico. She must learn that there is still hope to be found in her new life in the United States.
This book takes place at the Texas/Mexico border, with the protagonist feeling the lure of Mexico calling to him to step foot there.
I tried reading this, but couldn‘t get into it. Probably the wrong time for me to read it.

*Why do song titles make me think of other songs, instead of books? Who knows? Anyway, I‘m very sure that when I was but a young gal, I sang this song in the shower all the time:
🎶 Oh, Mexico
It sounds so simple I just gotta go
The sun‘s so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I‘ll have to go now...🎶
That‘s “Mexico” by James Taylor from 1975. Wow—I‘m that old. 😂
