Another One Book - One Community possiblity

Into the Beautiful North

Into the Beautiful North

By: Luis Alberto Urrea

Genre: Adult fiction

Pages: 343

Published: 2009

Read: February

3 out of 5

Since this novel deals with illegal Mexican immigrants, I was surprised that it is set in present day. I may be ignorant, but I didn’t realize this issue was still such a problem until reading this novel. It really opened my eyes.  I read this book to review it as a possible one book – one community choice. I believe it may be a good choice as it may reach out to others as well.  It was entertaining and even very funny in parts. The characters are extremely likeable. The author, who is half Mexican -half American, does a phenomenal job writing about this crucial issue in a light-hearted yet educational manner.
