By Marcelo Hernandez Castillo

This moving memoir recounts the early life of celebrated poet Marcelo Hernandez Castillo as an undocumented immigrant in California. He was five when he came to California and spent his youth hiding in plain sight, always aware of the precariousness of his family’s position, and trying not to stand out. This refreshingly honest recounting of his life exposes the human experiences and vulnerability behind the headlines of “illegal immigrants” and is a remarkable reflection on what it means to be a citizen.
