Books I read on our bus trip
Reading is my favorite thing to do when we are driving our bus on straight roads. I sit in my seat in Our bus base camp, and read about all the the things my favorite book characters are doing.
My favorite book to listen to before bed is definitely Efren divided. Efren divided is a book about a boy who’s parents came over the border illegally from Mexico. Times get tough for Efren and his family when border patrol raids the factory where his mother works, and Efren finds out his mother has been deported. My brothers favorite character is Efrens father who is forced to work day and night to raise enough money to hire a coyote to bring Efrens mother back to the United States. Will Efren ever see his Mother again? I would definitely recommend finding out .
