Where We Come From

Where We Come From is a richly descriptive and emotionally wrenching novel. This story about the horrors of immigration is beautifully written. The story revolves around twelve-year old Orly and his god mother Nina. Nina has been harboring immigrants traveling from Mexico to the United States in an abandoned house. About third way through the novel this hits the reader :Orly felt as if everything he had inside him, his heart and lungs and liver and kidneys and stomach, was slipping from his body, down his legs and onto the floor mat where he’d just dropped his IPad. After reading that line, I became enamored with the novel and glided to the satisfying poignant ending.
