Indivisible by Daniel Aleman

Indivisible Indivisible by Daniel Aleman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mateo, whose parents are undocumented immigrants but also respected members of their community, is your typical high school student, trying to navigate the ups and downs of teenage life. He works at his parents’ bodega to help them, but dreams of being on stage. When his parents are detained by ICE and the threat of deportation is looming, Mateo must grow up far too fast as he tries to protect his younger sister, his parent’s business, and understand what is happening to his family. A wildly timely and thought-provoking novel, Aleman depicts a family’s struggle to remain together in the face of a country that wants nothing more than to tear them apart.
