Both heartbreaking and bursting with hope, this is the book we all need." --Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Young Elites and Legend series

"Something In Between takes readers on an emotional rollercoaster that's full of laughter, heartbreak, and real world realities for many. De la Cruz is a wordsmith; her prose full of heart. Her character Jasmine's dilemma will linger in the minds of all. This book will change you. A must read." --Dhonielle Clayton, co-author of Tiny Pretty Things and Shiny Broken Pieces, and the forthcoming The Belles

"Something in Between is an eye-opening, engaging, and empathetic read. I loved Jas and her family and cared deeply about her future and her dreams. A must-read!" --Ally Condie, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Matched Trilogy

"An immigrant herself, de la Cruz, succeeds in presenting a complicated and multifaceted topic in a manner that is light enough to keep readers engaged." --Kirkus Reviews

"[A] great choice for younger teens...This book belongs in every middle school library."-School Library Journal

"De la Cruz presents a timely and thought-provoking look at the complex reality of being young and undocumented in the United States...Readers will root for Jasmine as she fights for her future and finds the power of her own voice." -Publishers Weekly

"Through engaging dialogue and a flurry of unanticipated scenes, de la Cruz shines a light on the pressure immigrants face within an unjust and politically driven system. Provocative, eye-opening and poignant, Something in Between is a timely read in a troubled era."
