My dad had been planning to move to America from Mexico for some time, as he wanted to make a new life for himself. He finally saved enough up to move when he was about 15. His aunt knew about it and wanted to give him something to help prepare him, namely, a book. It was just a book about the English language and learning it, but it had been given to her by her mother, and given to her mother by her mother.Other people had said that English was written backwards compared to Spanish, but the book said otherwise and it helped him learn. Since then he’s made a decent life for himself, if my existence says anything about that. He still has the book with him, tucked away in some shelf.
