Over the past decade over 350 women around the city of Juárez, Mexico, have been raped and murdered. The remains of these brutalized young women continue to be found scattered in the parched desert, vacant city lots, and roadside ditches. Others are never found. In Secrets In The Sand, Agosín through her words and images invites her readers to bear witness to the reality that the grieving families of the disappeared and murdered young women face every day.
