Solito: The New York Times Bestseller

Available

Description

'Heartbreaking... A rare, eye-opening rendition of the brutal reality of border-crossing.' Lea Ypi

'If there's any justice, Solito will someday be considered a classic.' Rumaan Alam

Young Javier dreams of eating orange sherbet ice cream with his parents in the United States. For this to happen, he must embark on a three-thousand-mile journey alone. It should last only two weeks. But it takes seven.

In limbo, Javier learns what people will do to survive - and what they will forfeit to save someone else. This is a memoir of perilous boat trips, relentless desert treks, and pointed guns. But it is also a story of tasting tacos for the first time, of who passes you their water jug in the crippling heat, and of longing to be in your mother's arms.
