The Distance Between Us
- A Memoir
- By: Reyna Grande
- Narrated by: Tanya Eby
- Length: 10 hrs and 40 mins
When Reyna Grande’s father leaves his wife and three children behind in a village in Mexico to make the dangerous trek across the border to the United States, he promises he will soon return from "El Otro Lado" (The Other Side) with enough money to build them a dream house where they can all live together. His promises become harder to believe as months turn into years. When he summons his wife to join him, Reyna and her siblings are deposited in the already overburdened household of their stern, unsmiling grandmother.

I LOVED this book, it made cry, laugh and think all in one story. I think it is an amazing story Reyna Grande told.
