Aarti Namdev Shahani s true story of her family s coming to the USA is a hard one to read even knowing that her family was so much luckier than many other similar families The Shahani s were struggling before they came to the US although it s sort of funny that they were running from her dad s very overbearing family than from political aspects of their country Once in the US undocumented at first and then with green cards the family member who struggles the most is Shahani s father who can only find menial low paying labor sweeping streets Tensions are high with her mom able to make decent money by sewing and her mom fitting in well in the tenement area where they first live Even Aarti and her brother and sister are able to contribute to the finances than their father who is not accustomed to this demotion as the family member able to contribute the least to the family s welfare Eventually Aarti s dad is able to have his own business with his brother but they unknowingly sell watches and calculators to the Cali drug cartel and they begin living in legal hell Both men end up in Rikkers with Aarti s uncle being deported from the country after his release and Aarti fighting to find ways to keep her very ill father from suffering the same fate What we learn is that justice and good endings are for those who are wealthy in power and who have access to the best that money can buy All it can take is the right buzzword from a lawyer who cares or enough money to grease the system and those with the means can keep on doing what they were doing with no repercussions and continuing to haul in the wealth Instead poor people people with no means to defend themselves can be hauled in to take the blame for any wrongdoing Aarti and her family are intelligent hard working people and it hurt to read about their hardships When Aarti s father was arrested she was a teenager and it was only through luck research digging deep and not giving up that Aarti was able to help her father so much Sadly these things happen to many people not just immigrants but immigrants have the added fear of being deported as soon as they are give the label of troublemakers with no opportunity to defend themselves This is Aarti s memoir to her father and also the story of how much of her soul went into taking care of her family in the best way that she could take care of them In the end with all that she knows now about how to help immigrants we are left with the knowledge of how the battle to help her father wore Aarti down and left her without the energy to continue that type of work Thank you to Celadon Books for this ARC that I was able to read with the Goodreads Traveling Sisters
