An excerpt from Valeria Luiselli's book "Tell me How it Ends", a damning confrontation between the American dream and the reality of undocumented children in the United States.



Often my daughter asks me: So, how does the story of those children end? I don't know how it ends yet, I usually say. My daughter often follows up on the stories she half-hears. There is one story that obsesses her, a story I tell her only in pieces and for which I have not yet been able to offer a real ending. It begins with two girls in the courtroom. They're five and seven years old, and they're from a small village in Guatamala.
