    Chasing the Moon - Carolyn Boehlke
    When her family is captured by the Border Patrol as they enter illegally into the country, Nadia Alvarez, a fifteen-year-old immigrant from Mexico, is suddenly alone. She faces the reality of allowing herself to be captured as well and be reunited with her family, or carrying out her parents’ dream of a better life in America. Living on the heavily patrolled border of Arizona and Mexico, Nadia lives the life of an anonymous migrant, scrambling to make money for a family she has lost. When her living and job conditions take a dark and twisted turn, Nadia flees Arizona for the promise of something better in the heart of the Midwest: Minneapolis. There, she struggles to find the American life her family wanted, an idea that comes to take on new meaning as she faces the reality of living illegally, constantly torn between new opportunities and a fierce loyalty to her homeland. The author, Carolyn Boehlke, will attend the meeting.
