This is another of the best book I read! I enjoyed reading this one and it was inspiring. I just read this book in 4 days and the story keeps me intrigued. This book was based on the author's experience while she was a kid. This book really amazed me because it also mentions our country here. The last book I read is somehow connected to this book and I was like it was just a coincidence. The last book I read is also about social justice and the fight for justice and this book is also about that. And I am proud of the immigrants who are in the US because they still fight for justice:)

It's called "Three Keys" because of the three main characters of this book. I loved this book because it was about immigrants in the US. The author included her life in this book which makes me inspired. While reading this book, I feel sad for those immigrants who live in the US, especially the kids. Immigrants should stand up for their rights and that's what they do in this book. Also, I searched for Prop 187, which is mentioned here in this book and it was real. After they passed the Prop 187, I feel sad for the immigrants. So, there's a lot of emotions while I read this one. Everyone should read this book.

I really enjoyed the second book in the Front Desk series. I specifically liked how this was semi biographical, and because of my age in 1994, I was unaware that this was happening in California. I look forward to reading the next book.

Mia and all of her friends are back at it again! This time, Mia has a new teacher (who isn’t her favorite right now), along with the motel showing some struggles. This story also talked about an immigration law that puts many of her closest friends/people she knows in a hard situation (if it passes). Mia also didn’t take no for an answer when it came to figuring out solutions for many obstacles, so if she keeps this up, she will be unstoppable in life. I look forward to seeing what book 3 has in store for all of these characters!
