What did you like about the book? Such a wonderful voice! High school senior Gabi deals with all the challenges of senior year in high school, and then some: her Dad’s meth addiction, one friend’s pregnancy, another’s coming out, her Mexican Mom’s outdated ideas on dating, and maybe most of all, how to love herself and her body. And all this is processed as she realizes her own poet’s voice. Plus it’s funny!
Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? Those who liked Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass, The Duff
Who should buy this book? High schools, public libraries
Where would you shelve it ? YA fiction
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? YES!!
