The Far Away Brothers

The September selection was The Far Away Brothers by Lauren Markham. Markham follows the story of two twin brothers as they leave their home in El Salvador and take the trek north to America, encountering many dangers along the way and then navigating their new lives in a foreign country – and  adolescence. If you missed the meeting or just have additional thoughts, please comment below!
