The Circuit: Stories from the Life of a Migrant Child - Francisco Jimenez

I feel as though the author Mr.Jimenez, was trying to tell myself that I should try to understand what he went through to come here, and how hard he had to work. It says in the Authors Note that Francisco used his poverty to write his books, and he tries to show reader how little he had and how much he accomplished.


I think Francisco wanted children that are just like he was to see that even though you don’t have a lot you can do really great things. Francisco spent most of his childhood moving around and doing hard work. Working hard and having dedication,Francisco went to a very good college. By reading the book I think that Francisco wants kids to work hard and understand how hard he worked to get to where he is today.


Francisco reminds me or my brother and I am like Roberto. My brother is like Francisco because he is smart and he works hard, even though he may need help from me along the way.
