Benito’s childhood in El Salvador is disrupted when gang violence comes to his community. When gang members begin to recruit his siblings and target the family with violence, Benito’s mother decides that the family will leave the country. Benito’s new life in Mexico is different. He and his family hope to one day return home. Interspersed with facts about El Salvador and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about the conflict there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes. Teacher’s guide available.
