SOMEONE LIKE ME How One Undocumented Girl Fought for Her American Dream

by | Read by Julissa Arce

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

In this YA memoir, Julissa Arce tells the story of her childhood in Mexico and her teen years as an undocumented immigrant in the U.S. Her heartfelt delivery makes the audiobook sound like a friend revealing her hidden tragic past. Before she became a vice president at Goldman Sachs, she was the youngest daughter in a family that prized education. Her parents worked tirelessly at selling silver at trade shows while she stayed with nannies in Mexico. In middle school, she joined her parents in Texas, but after her tourist visa expired, she lived in fear of discovery. Despite enduring abuse and trauma, she earned stellar grades and SAT scores, only to find more barriers to the American dream. Arce shows that immigrant teens deserve more opportunities.
