I am now lining up school visits to talk about the issues touched upon in The Secret Side of Empty: “illegal” (undocumented) immigration, alienation and the feelings of hopelessness we all sometimes feel when faced with what seem like insurmountable odds. Check this section of the site often as we are updating it based on your feedback.
About The Secret Side of Empty:
As a straight-A student with a budding romance and loyal best friend, M.T.’s life seems as apple-pie American as her blondish hair and pale skin. But M.T. hides two facts to the contrary: her full name of Monserrat Thalia and her status as an undocumented immigrant.
With senior year of high school kicking into full swing, M.T. sees her hopes for a “normal” future unraveling. And it will take discovering a sense of trust in herself and others for M.T. to stake a claim in the life that she wants.
Author Maria E. Andreu draws from her personal experience to tell a story that is timely, relevant, and universally poignant.
