Martinez's life in Guatemala is turned upside down when gangs harm and threaten the people in his neighborhood. He must leave his friends and two dogs behind when he and his family are smuggled to a refugee camp in Mexico, where thousands of families escaping violence hope to find safety. Interspersed with facts about Guatemala and its people, this narrative tells a story common to many refugees fleeing the country. Readers will learn about gangs there and how they can help refugees in their communities and around the world who are struggling to find permanent homes.
