About the Author

Keka Novales is originally from Guatemala and now calls Texas home. She lives with her husband and their three children and two dogs. Keka and her family have lived in several places in the U.S, including South Carolina, Kansas, Florida, and now Texas. Every state has been a unique and beautiful experience. Moving has taught them to be flexible and always enjoy each moment. When Keka is not writing, she is having adventures with her family.
Gloria Félix was born and raised in Uruapan, a beautiful, small city in Michoacán, Mexico. Her home is one of her biggest inspirations when it comes to art. Her favorite things to do growing up were drawing, watching cartoons, and eating, which still are some of her favorite things to do. Gloria currently lives and paints in Los Angeles, California.


When Lola Lopes starts at a new school in Texas, she faces the usual conflicts: riding the bus, getting lost at school, making friends, and making peace with mean kids. Lucky for Lola, she has a supportive family, including her abuelita. Abuelita encourages Lola to be kind, even to kids who are mean to her. Lola's kindness pays off, and she learns to look forward to school. Lola is Guatemalan-American; the book opens with an introductory page that includes facts about Guatemala. Chapters are 4-6 pages in length and include frequent full-color illustrations. The text is written at a higher reading level, and with more words per page, than the average books marketed toward 5-7 year olds, making this a book to share or an independent reader for advanced readers. A Spanish glossary, lemonade recipe, and discussion questions are included in the back matter. VERDICT A nice addition to an early chapter book collection, especially for advanced young readers.--Chance Lee Joyner "School Library Journal"
