    Abstract:
    © 2018 Regents of the University of Colorado. This article takes into consideration Valeria Luiselli's Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in Forty Questions, a nonfictional work about unaccompanied Central American minors coming to the United States and the immigration questionnaire they must navigate to determine their US admissibility. The essay explores how the Northern Triangle's minor-the outré LatinX child-is made into the word on bureaucratic paper. It probes a genealogy of temporary American beginnings and delves into the expulsed Central American child as a newcomer, a migrant, and the beginning of something else: a LatinX phenomenon of-and in-crisis.
