    A boy and a girl who fall in love. Two families whose hopes collide with destiny. An extraordinary novel that offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be American. Arturo and Alma Rivera have lived their whole lives in Mexico. One day, their beautiful fifteen-year-old daughter, Maribel, sustains a terrible injury, one that casts doubt on whether she’ll ever be the same. And so, leaving all they have behind, the Riveras come to America with a single dream: that in this country of great opportunity and resources, Maribel can get better.

    Beth Anne says: "interesting view into the immigrant experience"

    What made the experience of listening to The Book of Unknown Americans the most enjoyable?

    I just love LOVE audio books that have many different narrators - it just brings the book to life.


    Any additional comments?

    IMO the fantastic audio presentation brought this book to life. I loved this book with a passion until the last half an hour - then it got draggy and I found myself looking at how much longer was left. A good editor could have made this a 5 star listen but it was still worth a credit.
