#3 - Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez

This is an interesting story of what it is like for a family originally from Panama traveling to live in Delaware. This book is mainly about what it is like for immigrants to live in our country. They come here with big dreams and often think just getting here the dream will happen. They come to soon realize there is still a lot of work to be done. You learn how our American society treats immigrants and how hard these people have to work just to keep going. 

The story is also about a young man (the Mayor's son) who has a big crush on the teenage girl Maribel who has brain damage due to an accident. Very sweet Young adult type read but for me the characters could have been developed better and story line as well. But then again it was a YA read.
