* "An intense and enlightening historical fiction title that's highly recommended for all libraries." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Harrowing and important, All the Stars Denied explores a bleak moment when the US turned against Mexican Americans as scapegoats for its social and economic woes. Through Estrella's journey first toward activism and then back home after deportation, Guadalupe García McCall sketches with deft and poignant strokes a model of courage for our own darkling times. This loose sequel to Shame the Stars is arguably the most important YA novel of 2018." -- David Bowles, Pura Belpré Award Honor-winning author of The Smoking Mirror and They Call Me Güero

"An incredibly relevant story, now more than ever." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Through Estrella's eloquent letters to her late grandmother and insightful poetry written in her journal, the sorrow and hardship of the ordeal is brought to light in a unique voice." -- Booklist
