Borders are magical places, and growing up on a border, crossing and recrossing that space where this becomes that, creates a very special sort of person, one in whom multiple cultures, languages, identities and truths mingle in powerful ways. In these eight stories and sixteen poems, a wide range of authors explore issues that confront young people along the US-Mexico border, helping their unique voices to be heard and never ignored. Featuring the work of David Rice, Xavier Garza, Jan Seale, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Diana Gonzales Bertrand, and many others.
