Allison is working hard on her second story! Her first story, The Sisters’ Mind Connection, has been hugely popular and we imagine the next, which will be about migrant and refugee children, will be the same.
Allison has dedicated a lot of time already to preparing the next book for the Voices series, including field trips to meet a refugee community in Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico to learn about their lives.
Here is Allison with Elisa. Elisa García is originally from Spain. She is trained as a lawyer and specialized in international refugee law. Elisa took the plunge last year: she was approached at an academic conference by the Government of Tabasco and offered the job as founding director of Albergue Colibrí.
J. is 16 and is 5 months pregnant. She is from Honduras. Shy and guarded, she lightened up when Allison showed her her book and teared up when Hazel called her courageous.
