summary:

In sharing the epic journey that thousands of immigrant children make each year to find their mothers in the United States, Nazario explores the perils modern day immigrants face. With a reporter's eye on the truth, she humanizes the issue, posing new perspectives that fall on both sides, while offering ways to change the national dialogue on the influx of immigrants and the effects they have on the state of the nation.

A projects reporter for The Los Angeles Times, Nazario has spent more than two decades reporting and writing about social issues and garnering dozens of awards, including the George Polk Award for International Reporting and the Grand Prize of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards. Tackling hot-button issues such as hunger, drug addiction and immigration, she combines sensitivity with a sensible viewpoint on the subject matter.
