Georgie Jessel. Sort order. Start your review of Lucky Boy. When I first started this I wasn't sure if this is one I would like.
The writing was good so I continued and am so glad I did. This is a wonderful story, a devastating one and a timely one.
Two women, one Soli, illegally in the US, went through so much to get here, not an easy trip. The second a young Indian woman, Kavya, who wants desperately to have a child.
Married to Rishi, they have been trying without success. Two women, one little boy named Ignacio, who will steal your heart and wrap it When I first started this I wasn't sure if this is one I would like.
Two women, one little boy named Ignacio, who will steal your heart and wrap it around your little finger. Never really realized what the undocumented go through, how they have to live when they are caught and before they are deported.
The author notes that the immigration laws are those of , but that little has changed. This is a book full of love and heartbreak, of struggle and fear.
These two women want this child and how this plays out is the story. There is no bad in either, no evil, just wanting the best for this little boy.
Informative and an agonizing look at the deportation process and the undocumented experience. I think sometimes we tend to forget to look at people as people, who want the same things we do but often find insurmountable barriers in their way.

This really timely story is a heartbreaking one about an undocumented young woman, Soli, who takes risks for hopes of a better life, risks which were more dangerous than she ever imagined as she leaves her family in Mexico to make her way to the US.
Soli's story is told in conjunction with the alternating narrative of a young couple of Indian descent, Kayva and Rishi who want desperately to have a child but are not successful in their attempts to conceive.
They are ultimately connected by a baby This really timely story is a heartbreaking one about an undocumented young woman, Soli, who takes risks for hopes of a better life, risks which were more dangerous than she ever imagined as she leaves her family in Mexico to make her way to the US.
They are ultimately connected by a baby boy named Ignacio. It's difficult to write about this without giving too much of the story away but suffice it to say that this story grabbed me from the beginning.
During this past election with a big focus on immigration and whether to deport undocumented people, one of the things that I found very difficult to imagine was separating US born children from their parents who may be deported.
This is a gripping story that will keep you interested to the end waiting to see what happens to these desperate people and this beautiful, little boy.
Difficult to say how lucky he was , but definitely worth reading. View all 27 comments. Nov 29, Elyse Walters rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley.
Kudos to the author!!! Kayvan had moved to Berkeley eighteen years earlier for college. She graduated, traveled, became a chef, and married Rishi.
After nine months of trying to get pregnant with no success -they were looking into adoption. Their plans took a detour when they became foster parents to a little boy - a toddler named Ignacio.
They hoped to adopt him. Solimar Castro Valdez makes plans to meet her cousin in Berkeley. She needs to make it Boy She needs to make it across the border from Mexico.
Her cousin tells her that she has a place to stay and a job for her when she arrives. The journey is traumatic.
Soli arrives in bad shape -- filthy- exhausted - abused - and pregnant. Against all advice from her cousin-- she refuses to abort the baby.
She wants to keep her child. Problems and struggles increase. Soli is an illegal immigrant and she is in a detention center facility about to be deported back to Mexico.
She wants her child. Two mothers love Ignacio. Two mothers want him as their permanent son. Issues get raised - lives intersect. It's also sad - and frustrating.
It's easy to see that there is no easy answer. Many immigrant children face uncertain futures and its no different for Ignacio.
I don't want to give this story away --but it will pull at your heartstrings--as it's easy to see all points of view -- all in the name of Love.
A terrific book club pick. An important discussion book as it feels very realistic. Thank You G.
View all 7 comments. I have updated my original rating because though I was not in love with the style of storytelling, it nevertheless brings this sad state of affairs into the light and it's going to become a more prominent issue.
I can appreciate the intent to bring knowledge and sympathy to families in crisis but this style of storytelling is not a good match up with me. Though it may be satisfying for many it was just too long-winded and melodramatic for my tastes.
While information gleaned from research was no doubt factual there was too much crammed into the characters and pages. That said, it does a decent job of using the fiction platform to give a voice to a sad and contentious issue—the plight of children born of parents who are living and working under the radar in a country which then claims their offspring as its own.
The author's resolution of Ignacio's fate rang true and was unexpected. Jan 26, Jill rated it it was amazing. The heartbreaking journey of two women, bound by the love of a baby boy, was so NOT a book I wanted to read.
It sounded like a potboiler romancethat is, until I actually started it and didnt want to come up for air.
The writing was so mesmerizing, the situation so poignant and the characters so authentic that I found myself staying up past my self-appointed bedtime to read just another page.
There are two key characters here: Kavya, daughter of Indian immigrants, who has always taken control of The heartbreaking journey of two women, bound by the love of a baby boy, was so NOT a book I wanted to read.
She and her techie husband Rishi struggle with the emotional ravages of infertility. Soli is arrested and her son, born on American soil, is taken over by the state of California, where he ends up in the custody of foster parents Kavya and Rishi.
Neither are villains; both women are good-hearted and striving to define what it means to be a mother. My sympathies kept shifting from one to the other, knowing that each woman was emotionally invested in the little boy.
I finished this powerful book at a particularly fortuitous time, when a hard-hearted demagogue heads our country and is targeting law-abiding immigrants who simply want a chance to survive and raise their own children in peace.
Anyone who paints all immigrants with a broad brush must read this revelatory novel. And anyone who believes, as I do, that there is no such thing as an illegal human should read it to0, and revel in its themes of identity, fertility, motherhood and growth.

Only the worst things can bring it ripping through the human veneer. While the title is "Lucky Boy," I'm not sure that anyone in this timely novel could be considered "lucky.
She has only a vague understading of the system, and believes that a cousin who lives in the US will help her establish her new life.
Before even reaching the border Soli meets with heartache and disaster, and, unknown to her at the time, a child in her womb. Simultaneously, author Shanthi Sekaran introduces the reader to an upwardly mobile Indian-American couple named Kavya and Rishi.
Educated and talented, they are living the American Dream, except that they are struggling with infertility.
This book stirred my emotions and has inspired me to learn more about the deportation process as well as the rights aliens have regarding their American-born children.

I felt such a wide range of emotions reading this book that it is hard for me to write a review that will make others understand why it meant so much to me but here we go The two main characters in this book are woman who feel like they are not enough and desperately love the same child, and use their love for this child to get them through some very rough times.
Soli left her small town in Mexico because she was the only one her age left and she felt like she could be more in America than I felt such a wide range of emotions reading this book that it is hard for me to write a review that will make others understand why it meant so much to me but here we go Soli left her small town in Mexico because she was the only one her age left and she felt like she could be more in America than she could ever be at home.
You go through the horrors that you know happen to women as they try to get into the US illegally but don't want to think about.
She meets the love of her life and the father of her child and loses him in a cruel twist of fate. She get a job as a house cleaner and nanny to a family in Berkeley, CA but is caught by the police and is separated from her child while awaiting her fate in a detention center where more things that you know happen to women in these center but also don't want to think about happen.
Her child, Ignatius, goes to the Reddy's, an Indian family who has been desperately trying to have a child of their own to the point where it is destroying themselves and their relationship.
The child who they call Iggy pulls them together slowly. Ultimately there is a legal battle for the child between the natural mother and the adoptive family.
I was not aware that US born children with parents in detention centers could be placed for adoption due to a legal system that does not work with the parents to get them legal representation for family court or even allow them to go or call into court hearings.
I thought the children were deported with the parents but this is not always the case. You are rooting for the Reddys and Soli because they are both so likable and you want their pain to stop but in the end you know both cannot have the child.
This book broke my heart and opened my eyes to the pain that many people are going through that I would have never experienced or even realized people were going through.
And isn't that what books are suppose to do, put you in someone else's shoes? I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads. I received a free advanced copy of this book from Penguins First to Read Program for review consideration.

View all 3 comments. Feb 08, switterbug Betsey rated it it was amazing Shelves: prizeworthy. Saturated with ethical questions about maternal love, privilege, boundaries, and the immigrant experience, the story tells itself without any authorial interference.
Hard questions have no soft answers, and the reader, while adventuring through morally complex lines and barriers, will surely be exhilarated and full of empathy for all the primary characters.
There are no easy outcomes to knotty disputes of immigration and the undocumented worker, as well as the foster care system and questions of class and standing.
When a child is involved, the heart demands authority over statutes that are buried under benevolence. What we have is a tale bursting with humanity that traverses the invisible borders of the law, morality, and mercy that both connect and divide us from each other.
There are borders and boundaries, and then there are immigrants and the law. But, when it comes to maternal love, that love IS the law, and there are no boundaries in the heart that can be imposed by the courts.
She was breaking out. His name was Manuel. And he was there. Right there in Santa Clara Popocalco. For months, the idea of leaving had lain dormant.
But it was stirring now, snuffling to life. Every cell in her body strained against its casing. It was time to leave.
It was time. Manuel would meet her at the entrance to the town hall. Slowly, slowly, the procession moved on. She walked hand-in-hand-in hand with her mother and father.
She squeezed their papery old fingers and pulled harder with each step. When they turned a corner, she spotted the clock tower by the church.
Seven minutes late already. At the town hall doors: no Manuel. No one who looked like he owned an American passport. A man like that would have to be handsome—not that handsome mattered, not when all she wanted was the land beyond the border, except that she was eighteen and helpless against the nether-murmur of romance.
Papi found her and brought her a plate of tamales, which she was too jumbled inside to eat. Mama would be milling through the village plaza and finding old friends from nearby towns, stretching spools of gossip that had begun a month, a year, a decade before.
As the sky dimmed, drums and horns throbbed through the square. Drink had been drunk and around her the village swarmed with new faces: where had they come from?
A pair of teenagers leaned and kissed against a tree, a flutter of children linked arms in a circle, running themselves off their feet, a perilous carousel of arms and legs and fevered teeth.
Still, no Manuel. She believed a cigarette would make her feel like less of a waiting fool. Never had she seen so many people here, in her little village.
Most days, it seemed the world had forgotten Santa Clara Popocalco. It was the sort of place that existed only because no larger town had cared to claim it.
It lay dry and hollow, anchored to this earth by the Sierra Norte to the east, Oaxaca city to the west.
Every morning a cold front rolled in from a distant shore. It collided with the hillside and smothered the valley in fog that smelled faintly, sweetly of corn.
Every afternoon, the sun burned through the fog, and houses regained their low and addled forms. Popocalco offered no work, only the growing and eating of a few stalks of corn.
When the money left, the people followed, except for the very poor and very old, who still grew crops to feed themselves and sell in local markets, who gurgled through the village square every morning and in the evenings, visiting the church, nodding to the faces, always the same faces, and napping and cooking and eating and washing, sweeping their front steps each day, not exactly waiting to die, Soli believed, but not quite living, either.
She was his only one. And Mama. Mama would crawl into bed and never crawl out. But decay had spread like the valley fog, until it found its way to Soli.
She was filling up with silence and heavy bones. She was eighteen. And then, the letter from Silvia. Inside, somewhere between her chest and chin, a seed split open to the sun and she began to wonder: Could she?
And how? And eventually: When? And why not? And how soon? Her life lay elsewhere. The fireworks family entered the square, pushing the castillo de luces, a tower of scaffolding rigged with rockets and sparklers.
In the big picture, Popocalco was nowhere. In the big picture, it was a thin and spiny stretch of the past. She waited for an hour at the church door, until all her readiness had been sighed away.
Papi wandered off. A brass band began to play, the somber nasal tune Soli had heard every year, for as long as she could remember, at la Noche del Maiz.
