Written by Susan Kuklin with Illustrations by Susan Kuklin - Current Affairs, Human Rights, International Relations, Nonfiction, Politics, Social Issues, Young Adult 13+

Meet nine courageous young adults who have lived in the United States with a secret for much of their lives: they are not U.S. citizens. They came from Colombia, Mexico, Ghana, Independent Samoa, and Korea. They came seeking education, fleeing violence, and escaping poverty. All have heartbreaking and hopeful stories about leaving their homelands and starting a new life in America. And all are weary of living in the shadows. Since the last presidential election and the repeal of DACA, it is no longer safe for these young adults to be identified in photographs or by name. Their photographs have been replaced with empty frames, and their names are represented by first initials. We are honored to publish these brave accounts that encourage open conversation about the complexities of immigration --- and the uncertain future of immigrants in America.
