Latina writer of books for kids of all ages.

If you know a young writer, send them to Pamunkey Regional Library (Rockville Branch) April 4, 7 pm. My pal Gigi Amateau and I are offering a free two-hour writing workshop for kids grades 6 – 12.  See you then!

  1. I liked seeing Liesel’s pceipertsve because everything I read about this subject before was from a Jewish person or American soldier’s pceipertsve. It is interesting to see how kids grow up to form opinions and how people can only keep them to themselves so much. Sometimes it is too painful not to be kind! If you like this book, you should read The Red Scarf Girl too. It deals with similar issues for a girl coming of age in communist China who is torn between the values of her family and the values she is learning in school and society. This book also reminded me of Skellig in a way because I kept thinking that Max was like the weird, magical man who the kids found in the shed. If they do make it a movie, I hope that Jean-Pierre Jeunet directs it and it looks something like City of the Lost Children !
