There's a touch of anger in Laurence Bouvard's narration of this touching audiobook about the horrors and hope migrant Latin American children bring with them when they make the dangerous trek from their home countries to the United States. Bouvard doesn't overplay it--the anger, irony, and frustration that come through are quiet echoes of what author Luiselli brings to the book. This short volume is based on the 40 questions the children are asked after they're taken into custody. The violence and fear these children endure before and during their journeys north are revealed through their responses. Bouvard's performance is sympathetic and sound.
