One night Sophie and her parents are called to a hospital where Pedro, a 6-year-old Mexican boy, is recovering from dehydration. Crossing the border into Arizona with a group of Mexicans and a coyote, or guide, Pedro and his parents faced such harsh conditions that the boy is the only survivor. Pedro comes to live with Sophie, her parents, and Sophie's Aunt Dika, a refugee of the war in Bosnia. Sophie loves Pedro--her Principito, or Little Prince. But after a year, Pedro's surviving family in Mexico makes contact, and Sophie, Dika, Dika's new boyfriend, and his son must travel with Pedro to his hometown so that he can make a heartwrenching decision.

Fascinating read for teenage girls with an interest in other cultures and struggling with self confidence. Walk with the protagonist as she journeys from a place of fear, emotional weakness and social isolation to a place of self-acceptance and community.
