Jiménez's compelling autobiographical stories in Breaking Through, sequel to The Circuit, combine dramatic social issues of poverty and prejudice in the 1950s with timeless adolescent experiences of family tension, school and romance.  Powerful images of a teenager overcoming crushing poverty and personal challenges while maintaining hope encourages readers to "break through" their own barriers with tenacity and courage.
