La Lucha, by Melisa López for Fluency Matters
It is 1965, and 16-year-old Javier is a typical teen with dreams for the future. Javier wants an education so he can escape the brutal working conditions and poverty plaguing his family. Instead, he has to work in the fields to help support his family. When he hears about a man who has started a workers’ revolution, he joins the movement. He soon learns that landowners do not tolerate even peaceful activism, but his own father may be his biggest opposition.
