Author Francisco Jimenez, thinks you should learn that nothing is handed to you, you have to work for it, and even though you are born into a migrant family you still have a purpose in life, you may struggle in life but you can still make something out of yourself.
The character Francisco reminds me of me because he also has very many siblings, and he fights with them too. Also papa reminds me of my dad, because he was a very hard working man, and always wanted to be able to provide for our family.
I started to like the book in the chapter Miracle in Tent City, because it really showed how hard of a life they have, and how much they moved around. Also because they have nothing handed to them easy, they have to work for it, it reminds me of me because nothing is handed to me easy I have to work for it.
