About the Author
Lyn Miller-Lachmann is an American author, editor, and teacher. She was the editor of MultiCultural Review for 16 years. For Gringolandia, she received a work-in-progress award for a Contemporary Young Adult Novel, given by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She divides her time between New York City and Lisbon, Portugal, and is active in organizations for peace, human rights, and a sustainable environment.
"This novel covers crucial historical events that have been too long ignored. Most compelling are the teens' non-reverential narratives about living with a survivor."
"Gringolandia is a strong telling of a dificult subject. It brings the headlines home. One wishes it were about events long ago and far away, instead of continuing in the here and now. Beautifully-drawn characters weave a story with both its horror and redemption, and of a family struggling to find its way back to one another. A stunning achievement."
--Deborah Ellis, author of Off to War: Voices of Soldiers' Children
"Beyond everything else, this story is about survival. Miller-Lachmann has written a universal tale so good that I hated to see it end."
--Rene Saldaña, Jr. author of The Whole Sky Full of Stars
