"An engaging, character-driven story... An authentic representation of an immigrant, middle-class Latinx family who values education, community, and family and stays true to their roots." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Burgos's characters have depth, and the community she portrays is complex, warm, and very real. Themes of socio-economic disparities, bilingualism, and straddling of two cultures are brought effortlessly and realistically into the story. Readers will find places in their hearts for this strong and multifaceted character." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A poignant tale of learning how to help those you love. " -- Kirkus Reviews

"[Burgos] crafts a character who is thoughtful and true to herself, creating a satisfying story arc in which the protagonist determines her own potential." -- The Horn Book

"Miosotis Flores Never Forgets is a profound and heartwrenching book that can help kick-start conversations on ... heavy and complicated issues." -- Booklist

"Burgos builds a believable world in which strength of character is complex and contextual, deftly interweaving realities of racism and misogyny. " -- Publishers Weekly

"This title provides a tremendous exploration of complex topics which allows readers to see the effects of abuse and the dangers of keeping silent firsthand. " -- School Library Connection
