Dear America: The Story of an Undocumented Citizen by Jose Antonio Vargas

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas tells his story of how, when he was only twelve years old, was brought to the United States from the Philippines to live with his grandparents without the knowledge that he was sent to the U.S.. illegally. The author tells a touching and important story of what it is to be an undocumented immigrant, about the struggles, the fear of living in hiding and a double life.
