We Are Not from Here Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Pulga has his dreams.
Chico has his grief.
Pequeña has her pride.
And these three teens have one another. But none of them have illusions about the town they've grown up in and the dangers that surround them. Even with the love of family, threats lurk around every corner. And when those threats become all too real, the trio knows they have no choice but to run: from their country, from their families, from their beloved home.
Crossing from Guatemala through Mexico, they follow the route of La Bestia, the perilous train system that might deliver them to a better life - if they are lucky enough to survive the journey. With nothing but the bags on their backs and desperation drumming through their hearts, Pulga, Chico, and Pequeña know there is no turning back, despite the unknown that awaits them and the darkness that seems to follow wherever they go.

I would rate this novel a 4 out of 5 simply because at the end of the novel the plot seems to repeat itself and it begins to burn out. Because of the violence and language, I would recommend this book for 14 and up. And to Jenny Torres Sanchez, thank you for helping my class and me understand the physical, mental, and emotional pain and exhaustion that immigrants go through each and every day to get to our incredible country. As one of the main characters, Pequeña, explains, “We are small people, with small names, meant to live small lives. That’s all we’re allowed to live.”
