Just Like Us:
The True Story of Four Mexican Girls Coming of Age in America
Helen Thorpe

You and Me -- This is a personal tale that sheds much-needed light and reasoned, reasonable reflections on the too-often testy public debates swirling around immigration. The book is a page-turner with journalistic insight written by a seasoned reporter who also just happens to now be the First Lady of Colorado. Ultimately, the up-and-down, back-and-forth story of Just Like Us gave me hope for America -- and a better understanding of what it means to call myself, "American."
