¡Bocón! tells the story of 12-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive military regime in Central America for Los Angeles. A natural storyteller and irrepressible "big mouth" or bocón, Miguel loses his voice when his parents are taken and begins a metaphorical journey north to the City of Angels. Along the way, he finds his voice and the courage to cross the border to a new life. Miguel's story is relevant to immigrant children from all parts of the world, and to any child who is learning the many meanings of finding one's own "voice." Learn More

Like an archaeologist, Arlo can, with time, make even his dullest and most pathetic discovery sparkle. His method is simple—he tells "tender" lies. Learn More
