Solito SolitaThe United States In an era of fear xenophobia and outright lies these stories amplify the compelling voices of immigrant youth What can they teach us about abuse and abandonment bravery and resilience hypocrisy and hope They bring us into their hearts and onto streets filled with the lure of freedom and fraught with violence From fending off kidnappers with knives and being locked in freezing holding cells to tearful reunions with parents Solito Solita’s evocative stories bring to. I'm really glad I joined OSS as it's forced me to read outside my comfort zone and learn about various marginalized groups and specifically the struggles of women within them This was a particularly eye opening read that I devoured in 2 sittings It was both insightful and thought provoking exploring a variety of aspects not often mentioned or merely glanced over when the topic of immigration comes upI especially loved the format starting with testimonials from 15 different individuals on various parts of their journey 10 ways to help a historical timeline glossary and wrapping up with a very informative appendixes expounding upon various contributing factors to the crisis Central Americans face both in their motherland on their journey and once in the United StatesI cannot recommend this enough for people wanting to read an in depth exploration of youth refugees and their journey across borders Solito Solita now that I know the context even the title gives me chills I will definitely be picking up Voice of Witness book series' in the future
