Reviews

"...a rollicking fun read."--Publisher's Weekly

"This novel will resonate with readers who understand the difficulties of breaking out of their comfort zone, especially when it comes to conquering the obstacles of love and parents. Cerón's beautiful tale is a reminder that life lessons often come from outside of schools, books, or snapshots."--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"The story thoughtfully touches on identity and heritage: Lola's paternal grandparents were undocumented, Papi attended college in Mexico, and Lola feels sensitive about her language struggles. It also explores colorism in Latine communities; Lola has tan skin, Rio is light-skinned, and Javi, who has a darker complexion, has a Zapotec mother. A tender coming-of-age story about family and first love." --Kirkus Reviews
