BOOK EXCERPT:

In Mi sueño de América / My American Dream, young Yuliana Gallegos recalls her move from Monterrey, Mexico, to Houston, Texas. Initially excited about moving to Houston, where the huge freeways make her feel like she's on a roller coaster, her excitement quickly wanes when she starts school. Everything is different at Yuli's new school, and her discomfort is magnified by her classmates' stares. "They looked me up and down as if I was from another planet and not from another country." And to make matters worse, she learns that in spite of studying English in Mexico, she can't understand anything that's being said. All she wants to do is go back to her school in Monterrey. Yuli poignantly records the fear and anguish experienced by all immigrant children as they strive to adjust to a new language and culture. With the help of a compassionate teacher, a Japanese girl who becomes her friend, and her own determination to excel at her studies, Yuli gradually learns to speak English and feel comfortable in her new environment. Accompanied by black-and-white line drawings, this bilingual story will encourage other kids, whether immigrants or not, to write their own stories.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In Morocco, we had a decent life as a couple, but as soon as we had our first child, we realized that we needed something more to support our family's needs. After talking to my cousins and my brother, who were living in the US, the American dream seemed to be the solution to our financial distress. Our journey in the US was never easy; there were many life-changing events. And although each one left a deep scar, in the end, we were better for it. Each one of those challenges thickened our skin and made us less vulnerable to face the next one. With each and every milestone and graduation of our kids, we confirmed that immigrating to the US was never a mistake. After twenty years of thinking we were chasing the American dream, we found out that we just had to look deep inside of each one of us to bring it to life. The American dream does not define who we are; we define ourselves by setting up what kind of dream we choose, and we start a journey chasing it.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A National Bestseller! What does an undocumented immigrant look like? What kind of family must she come from? How could she get into this country? What is the true price she must pay to remain in the United States? JULISSA ARCE knows firsthand that the most common, preconceived answers to those questions are sometimes far too simple-and often just plain wrong. On the surface, Arce's story reads like a how-to manual for achieving the American dream: growing up in an apartment on the outskirts of San Antonio, she worked tirelessly, achieved academic excellence, and landed a coveted job on Wall Street, complete with a six-figure salary. The level of professional and financial success that she achieved was the very definition of the American dream. But in this brave new memoir, Arce digs deep to reveal the physical, financial, and emotional costs of the stunning secret that she, like many other high-achieving, successful individuals in the United States, had been forced to keep not only from her bosses, but even from her closest friends. From the time she was brought to this country by her hardworking parents as a child, Arce-the scholarship winner, the honors college graduate, the young woman who climbed the ladder to become a vice president at Goldman Sachs-had secretly lived as an undocumented immigrant. In this surprising, at times heart-wrenching, but always inspirational personal story of struggle, grief, and ultimate redemption, Arce takes readers deep into the little-understood world of a generation of undocumented immigrants in the United States today- people who live next door, sit in your classrooms, work in the same office, and may very well be your boss. By opening up about the story of her successes, her heartbreaks, and her long-fought journey to emerge from the shadows and become an American citizen, Arce shows us the true cost of achieving the American dream-from the perspective of a woman who had to scale unseen and unimaginable walls to get there.

BOOK EXCERPT:

For millions of people seeking better lives, the ideal we call "The American Dream" continues to be the ultimate goal. At an early age, author Stefan Adam longed for freedom in America, far away from the crushing rule of communism in his native Romania. After years of struggle and sacrifice, Stefan realized his dream of coming to America and building that dream. This true story unfolds, through good times and bad, with insightful observation of American society and a never-ending desire to understand what makes it great...its people, culture and politics. The story begins on the shores of Romania's Black Sea where 12-year-old Stefan first dreams of finding freedom and a better life in America, far away from the dark clutches of communism. Years later, that dream blossoms, along with Stefan's love for his high school sweetheart and future wife, Michaela. Together they embark on a journey to make their American Dream come true, and after years of hard work that dream comes into a full blossom. Readers who come along for the ride will experience the wonder and awe of discovering America through their eyes. But as time goes by, the promise of that dream begins to fade. Could it be that corporate greed and political arrogance were eroding the foundation on which this great nation was built? Is this another Roman Empire...a great civilization doomed to fall under the weight of its own power, greed and corruption? Their struggles exemplify what it means to fight for freedoms that are so often taken for granted and never to give up hope because, in the end, it is not just the story of Stefan and Michaela's American Dream. It's everyone's American Dream to nurture and protect. What Happened To My American Dream? is a very personal story of hopes and dreams and what happens when those dreams are threatened. Told in a straightforward, conversational style, is a touching tale that anyone who has ever longed for a better life will easily relate to. It is written by an ordinary citizen who came to this country under extraordinary circumstances. What Happened To My American Dream? serves as a reminder that safeguarding the American Dream is the responsibility of everyone who has the privilege of calling this great country home.

“A portrait of growing up in America, and a portrait of family, that pulls off the feat of being both intimately specific and deeply universal at the same time. I adored this book.”—Jonny Sun, author and illustrator of everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too and New York Times bestselling illustrator of Gmorning, Gnight! by Lin-Manuel Miranda I Was Their American Dream is at once a coming-of-age story and a reminder of the thousands of immigrants who come to America in search for a better life for themselves and their children. The daughter of parents with unfulfilled dreams themselves, Malaka navigated her childhood chasing her parents' ideals, learning to code-switch between her family's Filipino and Egyptian customs, adapting to white culture to fit in, crushing on skater boys, and trying to understand the tension between holding onto cultural values and trying to be an all-American kid. Malaka Gharib's triumphant graphic memoir brings to life her teenage antics and illuminates earnest questions about identity and culture, while providing thoughtful insight into the lives of modern immigrants and the generation of millennial children they raised. Malaka's story is a heartfelt tribute to the American immigrants who have invested their future in the promise of the American dream. Advance praise for I Was Their American Dream “Forthright and funny, Gharib fiercely claims her own American dream.”—Booklist “This funny, charming book about cultures clashing in the world of a young girl reads like something Amelia would have written if she’d had parents as cool and interesting as Malaka’s. This book breaks boundaries!”—Marissa Moss, author and illustrator of Amelia’s Notebook “Thoughtful and relatable, this touching account should be shared across generations.”– Library Journal “This charming graphic memoir riffs on the joys and challenges of developing a unique ethnic identity.”– Publishers Weekly

BOOK EXCERPT:

You may think this is another boring “I came to America and made a fortune” story. Not so. Paulo Ronez has an interesting past, and he recounts all the turns and twists his life took from boyhood to 2012, when he wrote this book. Life was a struggle for him, even learning the English language was a struggle. He persevered, and he conquered. Editors love to “polish up” a book. Paulo does not want to alter his text. Paulo is not a professional writer, but he wants his text left alone. I (his son Tony) also want the text left alone. This is to give you an honest true-to-life glimpse of how a real person writes a real book. Earnest Hemingway he is not, but a real person he is. Today, my father is 85 years young, living a full life and having fun in Tampa. He refuses to wear a hearing aid, even though he was diagnosed with mild deafness. As he states: “No way, that’s for old people!”
