Title: Surrender and Live
Author: Moreno, Michael A.
Abstract: Brothers Nathaniel and Nicolas have grown up like many children of migrant farmworkers- in the back of beaten pickup trucks, in the shady billows of cotton rows, in the corroded tin outbuildings that house both the weary laborers and monstrous machines that keep food on their tables. Neglected from the start, the two boys struggle to survive the harsh realities of migrant life, the abuses of both their keepers and strangers, and the supernatural events that at times shackle them and at times empower them. While their journeys into adulthood must be taken separately, a shared longing for their long-absent father brings them together for an encounter that seals their fates.
