R EASON If I was in Enrique’s position I would risk my life to set off to find my mom. Knowing that what she did was very thoughtful and hard for leaving her behind, just knowing that she left was for us, and to make us live a better life. Even though there is possibly a chance that I will not make it, just the thought about trying to seek her is all that counts.
T HOUGHTS Enrique's Journey was very inspiring. It has opened my heart and I came to realize that mothers will do anything for there kids, even if the option was to leave their kids behind. As I read the story I could not imagine all the dangerous path that Enrique went through while he was searching for his mother. While I was reading I pictured myself doing the exact thing as he did.
T HOUGHTS CONTINUED I would recommend this book to everyone. It will teach you a lesson about how a young boy risked his life to seeking for his mother in the United States.
