After eleven-year-old Zitlally's father is deported to Mexico, she takes refuge in her trailer park's forest of rusted car parts, where she befriends a spunky neighbor and finds a stray dog that she nurses back to health and believes she must keep safe so that her father will return. Includes author's note about immigration from Mexico to the United States, and Nahuatl and Spanish glossaries.
