Dreams and Nightmares/Sueños y Pesadillas is a bilingual memoir by teenager Liliana Velázquez, who at fourteen fled horrific violence and poverty in Guatemala and headed out alone for the United States. On her trip through Mexico she was robbed by narcos and rode the boxcars of La Bestia, finally making it to the US border and across the Sonoran Desert, where she was caught by US Immigration. Told in Liliana’s own words, this is a powerful tale of strength and survival.
Liliana nos relata en sus propias palabras su historia de fortaleza y sobrevivencia.
