This is an excellent book. Brings a much needed balance to this contemporary tween experience genre novel for 11 - 14 year old readers. #positiverepresentation #ownvoices #family #identity #weneeddiversebooks #reneewatson I believe this is the 🇦🇺 / international cover. #digitalarc

When the book's author likes your review 😳😯🤯😬🤔😄🤓😁😃🥳

All the emojis!

Your girl does not claim to be a professional reviewer nor very good about putting thoughts and emotions about a reading experience into something logical... or something that'll encourage someone else to pick up this book... but I strive to be genuine and this poetry collection will always have a little spot in my border kid heart.

Hooked_on_books How cool that he liked your review! I actually had an author “like” my review on goodreads when I hated the book. Yikes! 😳 1mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

For me, this was an exceptional book. I saw myself and my husband... my very own Güero... in many of its poems. I saw my familia (family) and our traditions and our costumbres (customs) and even the dichos (traditional sayings) my Mom is so fond of imparting on us. I saw fragments of my hometown in México and the border city in Texas that embraced us when we first moved to the United States.

(Continued in comments below ⬇️)

Librariana I saw a protagonist straddling and balancing two cultures and I understood. I saw memories reflected back to me... and boy, did this make my heart smile. 1mo
Paperback.Propensity Wow I have to read this 1mo

Nonfiction isn‘t typically my thing, but I enjoyed this. It was recommended to me by my colleagues who recently added it to their World Literature course. I can definitely understand why they chose it and why it has been resonating with students. Noah‘s voice is sincere and engaging. #nonfiction #teachersoflitsy #representationmatters #weneeddiversebooks

I‘m SO EXCITED to use an excerpt from this book with my #AmericanLit classes this week. Anna‘s chapter “Off the Deep End” fits perfectly with our discussion about what it means to be American, and the timing with the anniversary of 9/11 couldn‘t be better. I just wish my colleagues would venture into this century & join me in diversifying our curriculum 🙄 #weneeddiversebooks #ya #teachersoflitsy #representationmatters

This GORGEOUS cover caught my eye online months ago. Bought it Saturday, started it Sunday, finished it Monday. Once I reached the halfway point, I couldn‘t stop! I generally enjoy historical fiction, and this offered a perspective that I hadn‘t read before. Good twists, semi-predictable but absolutely engaging

“The lengths the haves will go to in order to deprive the have-nots boggles the mind.”
