This review explores the chapters in The struggles of identity, education, and agency in the lives of undocumented students: The burden of hyperdocumentation. The review examines the content of the book by defining key terms, such as hyperdocumentation, and provides a short synopsis of each chapter to garner the interest of readers. It also examines the nature of undocumented Latinx students in the United States as discussed by the author through her application of appropriate critical social theories to evaluate the experiences of undocumented Latinx students. While describing each chapter’s content, this review also critiques some elements of the book by providing additional frameworks of critical social theories to further enhance the analysis of undocumented Latinx students. Through this evaluation, this review hopes to increase exposure in experiential knowledge explored through the experiences of undocumented Latinx students and the author’s personal perspectives.
