K.M. Hodge Thirty Second Review:
The Migrant report successfully tackles a hot button contemporary issue with ease and grace. The characters are engaging and keep you invested in the story. The novel is informative but also accessible for someone who is new to the issue. I especially enjoyed the dichotomy between the male and female characters. While I liked the story overall, the transitions were sometimes abrupt, which took me out of the story for a minute. I recommend this book to my readers.
