Americanized: Rebel Without A Green Card

Written by Sara Saedi

At thirteen, bright-eyed, straight-A student Sara Saedi uncovered a terrible family secret: she was breaking the law simply by living in the United States. Sara keeps a diary of life as an Iranian American and her discovery that she and her family entered as undocumented immigrants. Only two years old when her parents fled Iran, she didn't learn of her undocumented status until her older sister wanted to apply for an after-school job, but couldn't because she didn't have a Social Security number.
