Kind of Kin by Rilla Askew

This novel tackles the emotional issue of immigration reform in a thoughtful and heart-wrenching way. When a young boy's grandfather is arrested on suspicion of helping to smuggle illegals he must cope not only with the prejudices of the people around him but that of his own family. When he sees that the legal system isn't interested in the truth he sets out to help his grandfather and along the way ends up helping his long lost sister who has married a man that has been deported even though he was gainfully employed and not bothering a soul.
This is an exciting, emotional roller coaster ride of a novel. 5 out of 5 stars all the way.
