“The Bertrams and the Jimenezes were two families that lived in El Salvador. While the Bertrams operated a thriving restaurant, Domingo Jimenez operated a repair shop. Both families had dreamed of moving to America, but they were doing okay in El Salvador until the maras (gangs) struck. Each business was mandated to pay an outrageous  fee or risk being vandalized, with members maimed, etc. – the whole nine yards. With the potential rise of this fee, there’s only so much a business can take before it folds. Refusal to pay meant going against the gangs and giving up their lives. They activated the American dream once again, taking different paths. However, the road to the promised land was filled with pricks and thorns. Will the two families make it to America? Find out in The Wall by David Pereda.

“The Wall by David Pereda is a tale of survival that will appeal to just about everyone. It strikes the intersection between the “haves and the have-nots.” The plot was unique, almost a smooth dance between fact and fiction. I enjoyed reading this book because it was very realistic. This is the story of almost everyone that envisions the American dream, especially from impoverished or third-world countries. David told the story and developed the characters so well that I connected with them. Moreover, the novel made me question how much I will sacrifice for my loved ones to have a better life than I do. Thank you, David, for a beautiful story, flawless editing, and stylish writing. This was such an emotional read, and I had tears in my eyes when I finished. I hope Nancy has a story because I’d gladly read it.”
