Everyone should read this book."--Tommy Orangeu003cbru003e u003cbru003e From the two-time NBCC Finalist, an emotionally resonant, fiercely imaginative new novel about a family whose road trip across America collides with an immigration crisis at the southwestern border--an indelible journey told with breathtaking imagery, spare lyricism, and profound humanity.u003c/bu003eu003cbru003e u003cbru003e A mother and father set out with their two children, a boy and a girl, driving from New York to Arizona in the heat of summer. Their destination: Apacheria, the place the Apaches once called home.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003ciu003eWhy Apaches?u003c/iu003e asks the ten-year-old son. u003ciu003eBecause they were the last of something,u003c/iu003e answers his father.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e In their car, they play games and sing along to music. But on the radio, there is news about an "immigration crisis": thousands of kids trying to cross the southwestern border into the United States, but getting detained--or lost in the desert along the way.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e As the family drives--through Virginia to Tennessee, across Oklahoma and Texas--we sense they are on the brink of a crisis of their own. A fissure is growing between the parents, one the children can almost feel beneath their feet. They are led, inexorably, to a grand, harrowing adventure--both in the desert landscape and within the chambers of their own imaginations.u003cbru003e u003cbru003e Told through several compelling voices, blending texts, sounds, and images, u003ciu003eLost Children Archiveu003c/iu003e is an astonishing feat of literary virtuosity. It is a richly engaging story of how we document our experiences, and how we remember the things that matter to us the most. With urgency and empathy, it takes us deep into the lives of one remarkable family as it probes the nature of justice and equality today.
