Taking Hold: From Migrant Childhood to Columbia University

7 April, 2015

holdTaking Hold: From Migrant Childhood to Columbia University by Francisco Jiménez
HMH Books for Young Readers

In this fourth book in his award-winning memoir series, Francisco Jimenez leaves everything behind in California—a loving family, a devoted girlfriend, and the culture that shaped him— to attend Columbia University in New York City.

With few true accounts of the Latino experience in America, Francisco Jimenez’s work comes alive with telling details about the warmth and resiliency of family and the quest for identity against seemingly impossible odds.
