The Dishwasher's Son
Mike J. Quinn
Mike J. Quinn is a husband and father in a multi-national family who he has been trying to unite with American citizenship for over ten years. He is also the author of, "America Needs A DREAM," a book about the benefits of the DREAM Act for America. You can read his articles about the U.S. border crisis at www.thedishwashersson.org, and www.separatedbyinjustice.org. He also speaks about the effects of the U.S. immigration policies on its citizens, to immigration organizations, corporations, and at public events around the country.
This is a story of how the U.S.-Mexican border runs through the middle of a modern American family. Frank, an American teenager whose father ran off to Mexico after he was born, doesn't like Mexicans much. He even called ICE to report illegals at his work and joined the Minuteman border patrol. When immigration agents finally show up at his job, he is arrested along with several other co-workers. School ID cards don't cut it with ICE. Having a Mexican name didn't help. After he is deported, he finds an uncle and learns the shocking truth about his father's disappearance and the Mexican heritage he has tried so hard to deny. Desperate to get home, he takes the advice of a local border merchant and tries several different methods of sneaking across the border. With each new apprehension, the penalties for his crime increase. The next time he is caught, he will be banned from entering the United States for life. Frank's final attempt to get home will take him to the very place his journey began: the Arizona border. Being a Minuteman volunteer may help him avoid capture. The unforgiving desert could cost him his life.

Book cover type
I really don't know what the cover should look like. I need someone who knows what is needed in a cover to tell a prospective buyer what the book is about in a way that gets them to buy it. The book is about a teenager who hates Mexicans, then through his journey, learns to appreciate his heritage and accepts himself as a Mexican-American.
