Only nine years old, Javier Zamora set out on a journey that would change his life forever. He left the comfort and relative safety of his grandparents home in El Salvador and traversed over 3,000 miles with a group of complete strangers to meet his parents in the U.S. With coyotes leading the way, the estimated trip of two weeks unexpectedly turned into months. Months during which none of his family knew where he was, if he was dead or alive. This brave little boy was blessed with the unwavering kindness he received from a mother who was traveling with her young daughter and a male friend from her town. The foursome quickly bonded. The unwavering care they showered on Javier helped him survive death defying boat trips, long desert treks, dehydration, hunger, horrifying arrests and most of all a crippling loneliness. Years later, this poetic, well educated and humble man shares his story to heal his own heart and enlighten others who watch and judge from afar. A memoir of a little boy who dreamed of reaching his parents and a world where the price of freedom is inestimable. Heartbreaking and beautifully written, Javier’s story will be with you long after the last page. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
