From author-illustrator Erika Meza is a stunning and emotionally rich picture book exploring the depths of the journey across a border as an older sister reframes the long, dangerous trek as a game to keep her little brother motivated.

My sister tells me the rules of the game are simple.

Avoid the monsters. Don’t get caught. And keep moving.

If the monsters catch you, you’re out.

A young boy and his older sister have left home to play a game. To win, they must travel across endless lands together and make it to the finish line. Each child imagines what might be waiting for them across the border: A spotted dog? Ice cream! Or maybe a new school. But the journey is difficult, and the monsters are realer than they imagined. And when it no longer feels like a game, the two children must still find a way to forge ahead.

Author-illustrator Erika Meza delivers a powerful story from the viewpoint of those most impacted by border walls: young refugee children. This tale highlights the spirit and strength of those embarking on a dangerous trek, and what awaits on them on the other side.
