My Diary from Here to There / Mi diario de aquí hasta alláby Amada Irma Perez, Maya Christina Gonzalez (Illustrator)
One night young Amada overhears her parents whisper of moving from Mexico to Los Angeles where greater opportunity awaits. As she and her family journey north, Amada records in her diary her fears, hopes, and dreams for their lives in the United States. Amada learns that with her family's love and a belief in herself, she can make any journey and triumph over any change here, there, anywhere. The author and artist's previous collaboration was My Very Own Room/Mi Propio Cuartito, the winner of the 2000 Tomas Rivera Mexican American Children's Book Award.
