Abstract:

"Martinez longs for the happy, stable home he had in Guatemala--before gang violence forced them to flee to Mexico. And now, he is being uprooted again. His mother has decided they must return to Guatemala to take care of the extended family. Martinez is scared to return--but the love of his family and support of his new rural community in Guatemala gives him hope for a future without violence. Paired with facts about the instability in Guatemala and the experience of displaced persons there, Martinez's story offers a unique look at the fear--and resilience--refugees experience when they must return home"--
