About the Author
Leila Sales is the author of many middle-grade and young adult novels, which have received multiple starred reviews, been translated into a dozen languages, and appeared on many state lists and best-of-the-year lists. Before becoming a full-time writer, Leila worked as an editor for more than a decade, editing award-winning and bestselling books for readers of all ages. She is also the founder of the book development agency The Book Engineer. She lives in Austin, but travels all over the world to talk about books and publishing.
"Leila Sales explores complex friendship and family dynamics with insight, compassion, and humor in a story that will validate kids' experiences while also encouraging them to consider what others are going through. Anyone who's ever felt lost in the midst of too much change will find comfort in Vanessa's deeply relatable journey--and will likely wish for their own secret museum, too!"--Laurie Morrison, author of Up for Air
"A beautiful exploration of friendship, family, and forgiveness, and the things we keep in the museum of the heart. So compelling and so deeply moving, I didn't want it to end."--Ruth Behar, author of Lucky Broken Girl
"Readers will learn to value memories of the past, but also to look forward to what is to come. VERDICT This is an outstanding book for its unique and wonderful approach to relatable themes surrounding the notion of coming of age."--The School and Library Journal
"Nuanced and thoughtful...A creative and compassionate examination of friendship in all forms." --Book List
"Sales manages to combine all of this into a nuanced look at friendship, family, self-knowledge, coming of age, and community, with Vanessa a strong-minded and sometimes unlikable but always sympathetic protagonist."
--The Horn Book Magazine
"An action-packed ending that satisfies. Creatively explores the complexity of middle school friendships."--Kirkus
