Description
Twelve-year-old Jaime makes the treacherous and life-changing journey from his home in Guatemala to live with his older brother in the United States in this gripping and realistic middle grade novel. Jaime is sitting on his bed drawing when he hears a scream. Instantly, he knows: Miguel, his cousin and best friend, is dead. Everyone in Jaime's small town in Guatemala knows someone who has been killed by the Alphas, a powerful gang that's known for violence and drug trafficking. Anyone who refuses to work for them is hurt or killed-like Miguel. With Miguel gone, Jaime fears that he is next. There's only one choice: accompanied by his cousin Ángela, Jaime must flee his home to live with his older brother in New Mexico. Inspired by true events, The Only Road is an individual story of a boy who feels that leaving his home and risking everything is his only chance for a better life. It is a story of fear and bravery, love and loss, strangers becoming family, and one boy's treacherous and life-changing journey.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Ramon de Ocampo creates a soft yet determined voice for 12-year-old Jamie, who escapes his Guatemalan village in hopes of reaching the United States with his 15-year-old cousin, Angela. The pair must flee or be forced to join a local gang after Angela's brother and Jamie's cousin, Miguel, are killed for refusing. De Ocampo adds drama during intense moments of their journey north when Jamie and Angela hide from law enforcement and gangs. As they meet allies and adversaries along the way, de Ocampo easily transitions from the childlike voice of Jamie to more mature tones. Listeners will be captivated by this story of bravery and determination, which reflects the dangerous trip that many asylum seekers must take to find refuge. M.D. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
