Edition: First printing.
New York: Center Street, (2016) dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - A memoir about the costs - in separation from her family, constant fear and worry - of being an undocumented immigrant - even when one is "successful." "When she was 11 years old Julissa Arce left Mexico and came to the United States on a tourist visa to be reunited with her parents. . . When her visa expired at the age of 15, she became an undocumented immigrant. Thus began her underground existence, a decades long game of cat and mouse, tremendous family sacrifice, and fear of exposure. After the Texas Dream Act made a college degree possible, Julissa's top grades and leadership positions landed her an internship at Goldman Sachs, which led to a full time position--one of the most coveted jobs on Wall Street. Soon she was a Vice President, a rare Hispanic woman in a sea of suits and ties, yet still guarding her "underground" secret." SIGNED on the title page by Arce. Illustrated with photographs in full color. Resources. 296 pp. ISBN: 978-1455540242.
