“We may not have documents but we all have a story and we all have a name.” So begins the narrative of Juan, who travels across the US border with a coyote (smuggler) to fi nd a job. While working as a busboy, he learns that he and his fellow workers make less than half the minimum wage. Juan risks everything to stand up for justice. Duncan Tonatiuh has created a graphic novel rendered in an accordion-fold format reminiscent of ancient Mixtec codices that searingly portrays what it means to be Undocumented (Abrams Comicarts, $19.99). Ages 12-17.
