Borders are magical places, and growing up on a border, crossing and recrossing that space where this becomes that, creates a very special sort of person, one in whom multiple cultures, languages, identities and truths mingle in powerful ways. In these eight stories and sixteen poems, a wide range of authors explore issues that confront young people along the US-Mexico border, helping their unique voices to be heard and never ignored. Featuring the work of David Rice, Xavier Garza, Jan Seale, Guadalupe Garc a McCall, Diana Gonzales Bertrand, and many others.
