A Blossom of Bright Light brings to the forefront the children of undocumented immigrants and how the hreat of deportation puts the children of these immigrants at serious risk.Enjoying a rare evening-in with his girlfriend Adele, Jimmy encourages her to ignore a phone call from La Casa, the center that she runs for undocumented immigrants.

Luna knows there is something off about the Gonzalez ’ s, but having no power being a 15 ear old boy who ’ s immigration status is in peri, has little power to fight.

While this works a stand-alone mystery, I think part of the reasons I enjoyed it so much is the reason that I was already familiar with Detective Jimmy Vega and Adele Figueroa, with whom Jimmy is now in a friendshi.

Suzanne Chazin once again tackles the topic of immigration and the lives and relationshi of documented and undocumented immigrants.

This one involves scandal with a public figure running for office, immigration laws, forced deportation, greed, ethics, and the question- " what would you do for your child? " .This was definitely one that I did not want to put down but it was 4:00 in the night and I was tired of the Ipad hitting me in the face.

( Sad.) This one will really get you rooting for this family who 's father they are trying to deport.
