Publisher's Summary

In this young learners’ adaptation of his adult memoir Dear America, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas tells his story, in light of the 12 million undocumented immigrants currently in the US. 

Jose Antonio Vargas was only 12 years old when he was brought to the US from the Philippines to live with his grandparents. He didn’t know it, but he was sent to the US illegally.

When he applied for a learner’s permit, he learned the truth, and he spent the next almost 20 years keeping his immigration status a secret. Hiding in plain sight, he was writing for some of the most prestigious news organizations in the country. Only after publicly admitting his undocumented status - risking his career and personal safety - was Vargas able to live his truth.

This audiobook asks questions including: How do you define who is an American? How do we decide who gets to be a citizen? What happens to those who enter the US without documentation?

By telling his personal story and presenting facts without easy answers, Jose Antonio Vargas sheds light on an issue that couldn’t be more relevant.
