Recent release “A Long Walk to America” from Page Publishing author Jessica Lopez is the true story of Los, a young boy from El Salvador who has witnessed enough violence and bloodshed for a lifetime in his first few years of life. Now in America, the echoes of his past haunt him, preventing him from moving forward and living the new life he truly desires.
essica Lopez, works in show business as an artist in the industry of sports and film, has completed her new book “A Long Walk to America”: a powerful and emotional tale of a young boy’s future in America destroyed by his past which prevents him from healing and moving on, instead leading him down a difficult path.
“Everyone has a story. Some share the story, and some never make it out alive to talk about it,” writes Lopez. “‘A Long Walk to America’ shares real-life lessons from the young life of Los, a boy from El Salvador, who walks to America with his best friend. Los escaped from the civil war in his homeland in the 1990s as a child war soldier. Growing up in the civil war, he had seen death squads and violence every day. Los shares his story of how the USMC saved him and his friends from the regime. He had enough gruesome violence to literally make his stomach turn. Los has no stomach and had to battle stomach cancer after living in America. ‘A Long Walk to America’ is a real heartbreaker. Not everyone who makes it to America has a happy ending.”
Published by Page Publishing, Jessica Lopez’s heart wrenching tale challenges the notion that everyone who comes to America finds a better life for themselves. Readers will discover just how far past traumas can reach, and how one boy’s bright future can be blotted out by such tragedies.
Readers who wish to experience this irreverent work can purchase “A Long Walk to America” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
