Praise for This Is Our Place.

"It's been said by a queen that life is a mystery and everyone must stand alone, but thankfully Vitor Martins's stunner of a book will make you feel like you're home. This Is Our Place is a novel of constant delights. Ingeniously narrated by a very charming and observant house, this book beautifully captures the bittersweet joy and heartache of growing up, navigating love, and finding our place in the world." --Abdi Nazemian, author of Stonewall Honor book Like a Love Story and The Chandler Legacies

"This book is like a hug, literally. In this generation-jumping novel, Martins exquisitely shows what a difference a decade can make on being young and queer--yet how our lives remain beautifully intertwined. You've never read anything else with this much quiet power before." --Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons and The 99 Boyfriends of Micah Summers

Praise for Here the Whole Time:

* "This LGBTQ-themed story with a soul that goes well beyond exploring queer identity will delight teen readers of realistic fiction." --School Library Journal, starred review

"And uplifting, body-positive story about finding courage and love." --Kirkus Reviews

"I read this in one sitting, laughing out loud and cheering for Felipe to follow his heart. I love this book!" --Rainbow Rowell, New York Times bestselling author of Carry On and Wayward Son

"Martins perfectly captures the magic of first love and the power of being exactly who you are. Remarkably relatable." --Rachael Lippincott, New York Times bestselling author of Five Feet Apart

"Candid, thoughtful, and hilarious. Felipe is the hero teens deserve." --Julian Winters, award-winning author of Running with Lions
