Us, in Progress is a collection of short stories written from the perspectives of twelve diverse young Latinos who live in the United States. The stories cover topics including health issues, prejudice, personal identity struggles, dreamers, and cultural and family pressure. Each story is based on news reports or personal stories related directly to the author, Lulu Delacre. The struggles and victories contained within the stories help to paint a broader understanding of the Latino community in the US today.
