Le sac à dos

For Amine, life is good. Living and working with his cousins in Shreveport, Louisiane he is living what one might call the American Dream. After many years Oscar finally receives his permanent resident card (green card), and opens a business, a house-painting company. The work is steady and honest. In fact, it is so constant that Amine looks to buy a new vehicle to support the business. He is offered a truck at an incredible price, but he has to travel to Nouvelle-Orléans in order to pick it up. What should be a quick overnight trip, turns into one of panic when Amine loses something he has worked so hard to achieve.

Michelle is also living a good life. She and her husband, Marc, live in Bâton-Rouge, Louisiana. Michelle and Marc work hard - she as a delivery driver and he as a restaurant manager -  in the hopes of bringing the rest of the family to live with them in Louisiane. Marc is originally from Haiti and has two daughters who still live there with his mother. What the couple lacks, however, is the money needed to secure a lawyer to help with legal paperwork. On one particular trip to Nouvelle-Orléans, though, Michelle’s luck seems to turn when she finds a large sum of cash - a perfect solution to her problem. Or is it?

 

Learn how the lives of two people on separate journeys intersect in Nouvelle-Orléans, a city on the Mississippi River founded by French colonists.

    La Mochila

    Love this book for my novice learners. The story is compelling - the reader HAS to keep reading because we want to know how the problem is resolved! In addition to engaging topic/action the underlying struggle that a character has in deciding what to do is great for teens to experience. I also love that it features realistic characters that are portrayed with their humanity.

    I recommend this product.

    Easy to understand

    This story was easy to read without being too repetitive. It is written with the novice student in mind. I love that it ties in another Francophone country for us to explore as well as "le foot"!

    I recommend this product.

    Love El Jersey!

    I use El Jersey to enhance our 8th grade "Living on One" thematic unit after students complete a unit on Copa America. The cultural ties to Guatemala and to the Copa are endless. My students really relate to the characters.

    I recommend this product.

    Great addition to your FVR library

    My level 2 Spanish students enjoy this book in Spanish because it is written with vocab and structure they can understand. They also enjoy how the two worlds come together. These situations can happen to any of us. When students read this book, they are not only learning Spanish, they are learning good character.
