    1 thought on “Lives in Limbo: Undocumented and Coming of Age in America”

    1. Roberto Gonzales spent twelve years with 150 undocumented immigrants. He has a good case study on illegal immigration. The writing is technical and sometimes the author belabors the point - both make it a pain to read at times. I like the excerpts of the interviews included in the text. It makes you sympathize with the person and feel that there is a real person that needs help.Do not go to the United States illegally, that is the lesson I get from this book. Undocumented immigrants face a lot o [...]

    2. Illuminating and timely exploration of the experience of coming of age as an undocumented immigrant in America, and the unique challenges presented by learning of one's status in the eyes of the law while also attempting to transition into adulthood.

    3. Longitudinal study of undocumented immigrants and how their experience changes from early education to later education and then adulthood.Gives a detailed (sometimes repetitive) account of the variations in undocumented immigrant experiences and their treatment by schools, government, peers, and subcultures.Good book to read to get an idea of what is actually happening in the lives of undocumented immigrants. Also, considers the various problems of current (often conflicting) policy and legislat [...]

    4. I won this book on the giveaway. I do not agree with the moral of this book at all, but I want to give credit where credit is due. Mr. Gonzales strongly researched this subject and wrote a very informative book. I can feel his passion on this subject through his words. I do not believe anyone in the US should be entitled to anything. If this group of immigrants has it so rough here, then why come and stay here? I have had to work hard my whole life for everything I have. That is the American dr [...]

    5. A very great read for people seeking to take an analytical approach to liminality as it relates to undocumented immigrant's status as illegal.
