Today’s YA spotlight will give you all the feels as a Mexican American teen artist in the midst of a life transition questions who they are, figures out what they’re meant to do, and falls for the new waiter at their family’s taqueria.
ANDER & SANTI WERE HERE BY JONNY GARZA VILLA
“In Santi, Garza Villa has done a superb job of verisimilitude, taking their readers into the precarious life and circumstances of an undocumented teen. The love between the two teens is beautifully realized without a false note, proving that Garza Villa is as much an artist as Ander.”–Booklist, starred review
