Overview

Al abandonar su hogar en Bonetti Ranch, una comunidad de trabajadores migrantes compuesta de dilapidadas barracas del ejército, sin agua potable ni instalaciones internas de plomería, Francisco Jiménez parte rumbo a la universidad. Deja atrás a una familia que lucha por pagar la comida y el alquiler, y a un padre abatido y desmoralizado. Lleva con él los recuerdos de muchos años viviendo bajo la pobreza y el prejuicio, y así se adentra en un mundo distinto al suyo.

Y no obstante, mientras mecanografía las tareas de otros estudiantes a cambio de ropa, mientras estudia con empeño y se encuentra con inesperadas ayudas, emplea esos mismos recuerdos de su lucha y su sufrimiento para abrirse paso hacia adelante. Una vez más, las honestas palabras de Francisco Jiménez abrirán los corazones y las mentes de los lectores.
