Inside this Book – A dazzling, heartbreaking page-turner destined for breakout status: a novel that gives voice to millions of Americans as it tells the story of the love between a Panamanian boy and a Mexican girl: teenagers living in an apartment block of immigrant families like their own. After their daughter Maribel suffers a near-fatal accident, the Riveras leave México and come to America. But upon settling at Redwood Apartments, a two-story cinderblock complex just off a highway in Delaware, they discover that Maribel’s recovery–the piece of the American Dream on which they’ve pinned all their hopes–will not be easy. Every task seems to confront them with language, racial, and cultural obstacles.
Inside this book –The Book of Unknown Americans PDF Book by Cristina Henriquez – What struck me most about this novel is the structure whose purpose becomes clear with the last chapter. It is quite interesting and poignant. This novel is a reminder of how everyone who comes to the United States brings a complicated storyw ith them. In The Book of Unknown Americans, immigrants from México, Venezuela, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, etc. live in an apartment complex in Delaware. Though they come from all over the Spanish speaking world, they have more in common than they do not and they form a community–something of a home away from home. Arturo and Alma Rivera have moved from Mexico so their daughter, Mirabel, who suffered an accident on Arturo’s construction site, can get the help she needs. As Arturo and Alma try to make sense of their new life, while keeping an unbearably close eye on their daughter, Maribel is befriended by Mayor Toro who lives with his parents in the complex. Maribel remarks, as their friendship deepens, that Mayor is the only one who sees her and believes she can do anything. Henriquez chronicles their friendship and budding romance with real tenderness and makes it seem like anything is possible with young love.
