Both Sides of The Border takes the reader on a physical journey, up through Central America to Texas, but also a journey of perspectives and experiences. One woman heads north, escaping her old life, in search of a better one. A second woman heads south, escaping the mundane, all while searching for greater opportunities. While the content and societal relevance make this book a must-read novel for 2021, it is especially fitting for young adults looking to understand more about current events.
