This book could not hold my attention span for long Don't call me heartless because I have done missions in mexico for years Most people who like this book are probably just pretending to care for their social image Be honest You are It is in no way a bad book it has some great ideas behind it but it is just executed in a mediocre fashion What is itA historical fiction feel good about illegal immigrationWho wrote itFran Leeper BussNegativesI know this is nitpicking but if the woman on the cover is an illegal immigrant why does she have so much makeup on Maybe it's the uetzal lady ButThe uetzal lady is homeless Second off it is called journey of the sparrows but it does not talk about the journey to america It goes on and on about thecharacters home in el salvador and america but never the journey The characters met a kid named tomas and stayed in mexico That's so important but it never talks about this For such a bold choice to have a young adult book be about the real world the tone how do I explain it does nothing Everyother chapter they talk about mary the mother of jesus I understand that the characters are catholic and I don't hate catholics but it gets annoyingPositivesDespite not going into detail about mexico one of the book's strongest points is it's character development It is very realistic and portays illegal immigration very well Despite seeing the ending coming there were some touching moments in the last chapter I know that at first glance this doesn't look like much when compared to the negatives but in the end it counts for a lotVerdictI would have given this book 3 stars but goodreads would have labeled predictable feel goods as suggestions Yeesh For all it's heart realisticness and novel ideas for young adult literature it lacks a lot of the freshness that make feel goods like mary poppins and the sound of music what they are It ignores whole parts of people's lives and hammers home certain things to the point of annoyanceGradeC
