THE MAKING OF A DREAM How a Group of Young Undocumented Immigrants Helped Change What it Means to be American

by | Read by Almarie Guerra

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This audiobook reports on the young activists who are engaged in holding lawmakers to the promises made in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy (DACA). Almarie Guerra invests her narration with a judicious balance of formality and personality. The author's presentations of the subjects' backstories--from their childhoods through their political engagement as young adults--are easy to follow. Guerra adjusts her pacing so that factual details as well as individual opinions, emotions, and thoughts all receive respectful attention. Her steady pace neither hurries nor drags as passages move from descriptions of activism to the challenges of living in a near-permanent state of limbo. In examining what looks like state-sanctioned terrorizing of vulnerable individuals, Guerra makes these lives real without histrionics.
