In 2004, 17 year-old Alexis Portillo embarked on a harrowing journey from Honduras to Baltimore in the hopes of starting a better life. Over a decade later, Alex recounted his story to author and activist, Jana Laiz in this bilingual retelling. Thirty-five Days to Baltimore gives readers insight into the incredible power the American dream holds for those suffering the hopelessness and violence of extreme poverty.
