About the Author
Linda Covella is the author of award-winning books for kids and teens. She hopes to bring to her readers the feelings books gave her when she was a child: the worlds they opened, the things they taught, the feelings they expressed. Linda lives in Santa Cruz with her husband, Charlie, and dog, Ginger.
The book has earned a Gold Medal for Young Adult Cultural Issues and the Seal of Approval from Literary Classics who wrote in their review that Yakimali's Gift is "well researched and beautifully told...a literary treasure." They recommend the book for home and school libraries. It also won the 2015 RONE (Reward of Novel Excellence) Honorable Mention in the Young Adult category, and their review said the story "shines light on a little-known part of history and invites the reader to experience it first-hand." The Historical Novel Society's review said "Covella's extensive research into the culture and society of the Spanish-settled New World is worked seamlessly into a very human story."
