Our next community read is [http://www.aadl.org/catalog/record/1451696|The Book of Unknown Americans: A Novel] by Cristina Henriquez.
The book won awards and received critical acclaim for its story of hopes, dreams, love, and what it means to be an American. It centers on the story of a fifteen-year-old girl, Maribel, whose family must leave their life in Mexico so she can receive medical care. She falls in love with the neighbor's son, and their love has the potential to devastate everyone involved. The story includes viewpoints from both families, and immigrants from all over Latin America.
This year’s Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads theme is A Very Good Read and will take place during January and February 2016.
