We Were Here

We Were Here by Matt de la Peña
Miguel is sent to a group home after his brother dies but soon after he and two other boys from the home break free. They attempt to make it to Mexico where they can all live without worry that the police are looking for them. With vastly different backgrounds the boys make an unlikely trio but friendship finds a way.

A beautiful yet painful story. If you like books that don't paint a pretty picture this is an excellent choice.
