In a unique collaboration with photographer Wendy Ewald, 18 immigrant teenagers create an alphabet defining their experiences. Wendy helped the teenagers pose for and design the photographs, interviewing them about their own journeys and perspectives. The students' poignant and powerful images and definitions are presented along with their personal stories of change, hardship and hope. This book casts a new light on the crucial, under-heard voices of teenage immigrants themselves, making a vital contribution to the timely national conversation about immigration in America.
