Augusta and Noble tells the story of Gabi Castillo, a fourteen-year-old Mexican American girl in Chicago who has just been accepted to Northside College Prep, a highly-competitive school on the other side of town. In order to get to her new school, Gabi must travel a long, complicated journey across the city. Just as Gabi begins her journey, her dad must travel back home through the desert to Mexico because his father is sick.
