About the Author

Tanya Guerrero is Filipino and Spanish by birth, but has been fortunate enough to call three countries home--the Philippines, Spain, and the United States. Currently, she lives in a shipping container home in the suburbs of Manila with her husband, daughter, and a menagerie of rescued cats and dogs. In her free time, she grows her own food, bakes bread, and reads. How to Make Friends with the Sea is her debut novel.


Guerrero touches on many topics--anxiety, fostering, friendship, family, selective mutism, and more--seamlessly weaving them all together to create a strong, moving narrative. [...] A heartbreaking, heartwarming, powerful debut novel. -- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

A story for anyone who's ever asked where--and what--home is. -- Jack Cheng, author of See You in the Cosmos

How to Make Friends with the Sea is a heartwarming story about family, friendship, identity and finding courage within our own hearts. I know readers will have as much fun cheering for Pablo as I did. -- Dan Gemeinhart, author of The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise

Touching and sweet, Tanya Guerrero's debut How to Make Friends with the Sea is a multi-layered story with heaps of heart. Readers will root for Pablo as he finds his courage, voice, and family on this journey to self-acceptance. -- Elly Swartz, author of Finding Perfect and Give and Take

Atmospheric and moving, How to Make Friends with the Sea is an impressive debut. The friendship between Pablo and Chiqui completely captured my heart. -- Jasmine Warga, author of Other Words for Home
