This inspirational book traces the journey of a first generation migrant Hispanic family in 'the land of opportunities,' and their challenging, but successful struggle to bring their children into Ivy League universities against all odds. The story is complemented with practical information, gathered from the experience of this family and extended research done by the author, on how to prepare to win the race for college: A five-page detailed chart, 'The Landmarks Along the Road,' that shows, step by step, what needs to be done throughout the four years of high school, indicating not only deadlines, but approximate starting dates which will allow students to complete each step on time; an extensive list of useful URLs of sites with free practice tests, and a helpful section on how and where get funding for college.

We also cried of happiness for her success.
