Under The Same Sky

Under The Same Sky

Under The Same Sky

BY CYNTHIA DEFELICE

Brief Description:
Joe Pedersen wants a motorbike that costs nearly $1,000, and his dad wants Joe to earn the money himself and "find out what a real day's work feels like." Angry that his father doesn't think he's up to the job, Joe joins the Mexican laborers who come to his father's farm each summer. Manuel, the crew boss, is only sixteen, yet highly regarded by the other workers and the Pedersen family. Joe's resentment grows when his father treats Manuel as an equal. In her sensitive new novel, Cynthia DeFelice explores our dependency on migrant workers and simultaneous reluctance to let these people into our country and into our lives. 10 +
