After her mom is taken by ICE, seventeen-year-old Rania's hopes and dreams for the future are immediately put on hold as she figures out how take care of her younger brother and survive in a country that seems to be closing around them.
Her mom said their case with immigration was fine. If this was a lie, what else is? Alone in Brooklyn with her younger brother, Kamal, Rania will have to figure out how to survive. When they wind up in a home with other kids waiting to hear if they can stay in this country, she meets Carlos. He persuades Rania to go to her high school graduation. And from there, they just keep driving. Feeling trapped by circumstances beyond their control, Rania begins to fall for Carlos. She uncovers painful truths about her family, and this country, where being an asylum seeker or an undocumented immigrant can mean anything but freedom. -- adapted from jacket and Goodreads
