MG books about how Latinos Immigrate to the US?

Discussion started on

Hi, does anyone know any MG/chapter book/YA about how Latinos Immigrate to the US? I am looking for books that talk about immigrants' lives before they are in the US.

Thank you very much!

I have an old one Lupita Manana by Patricia Beatty. It's from 1981, so maybe not that helpful.

I don't know about any books. But my father told me his story.
I'm a first generation American Latina.

Ha, maybe that's something you can write about!
