Mateo loves his family and home in Mexico more than anything else in the world. But his peaceful life is interrupted when Julian, his older brother, illegally crosses the northern border to find work in the U.S, and soon after, Julian goes missing. Despite his fears of a new, unfamiliar land, Mateo feels he is the only one who can find his brother, so he sets off on an adventure of his own, not knowing the language or what challenges he will face but willing to risk anything to find Julian.

Opinion: 

In my opinion, Until I Find Julian was a good book. The characters all possessed very realistic traits and I really found myself rooting for Mateo and the others. This book was the perfect length and kept my attention with just the right amount of characters and details. One of the things that I liked most about the book was the small amounts of Spanish that the author included. I think this book is appropriate for all kids age 8 and older. It will also be especially enjoyed by readers that are fans of Esperanza Rising, a similar novel.
