Book Synopsis
DECEMBER SKY is the true story of a Central American child transplanted to suburban Los Angeles, among the one million who took part in the Salvadoran Diaspora of the 1980s. Her story recounts her family's risky trip through Mexico to flee a civil war and a young girl's years as an undocumented student with American ideals, who realizes her vision of a college degree. DECEMBER SKY is one of thousands of unspoken success stories made possible by the Amnesty Act of 1986, which allowed so many to reach beyond their underground lives as undocumented immigrants.
