  Breaking Through by Francisco Jiménez

Review by: Jacob B.
Connecticut, Grade 7

It is very inspiring.

The book is about a family of illegal immigrants. Tey are having trouble making ends meet. They go through many hardships but some how make it work.

I disliked the book because I felt there was no climax. I was waiting for something to happen in the book that was exciting but nothing exciting happend. The plot of the book is very good but the there was not enough action or emotion.

On the other hand I thought it was a very inspiring book. It shows kids that if you try hard an spend alot of time in school it will pay off. It also shows that it you put enough effort into something, even if it is very hard to achieve, you can achieve it.
