A Youthlight Book Review: Miguel: A Deportation Story

What occurs to children when they lose a parent to deportation? This book shares just that. Miguel is about a boy who was born in the United States, but his parents were not. They escaped their country for a better life in America.  During the story we learn that one of Miguel's parents is deported. We then look through the lens of a child and what that experience does to him. How it effects him...changes him.

This story is great for those students who may be facing similar situations, so they know they are not alone in their thoughts and actions AND for students who are so far removed from understanding or knowing a situation like this; for we can teach empathy through this story.

The story is not upbeat. It is a little melancholy, but it is real and totally supports advocacy, equity and diversity initiatives.
