While there was still a fair bit of cussing, I really enjoyed this book with its rich and vibrant culture.

I can't emphasize how much I loved the illustrated poem. It was beyond beautiful and powerful for such a short volume

Gr 3–6—This evocative poetry collection examines a wide range of issues including social justice, identity, racism,
activism, police brutality, inclusion, immigration, and human rights. Bold, striking illustrations illuminate a powerful
and necessary call to action.

Gr 9 Up—Camino and Yahaira, two teenagers in different countries who have never met, are suddenly thrust into
each other's lives when their biological father dies in a plane crash. They piece together their Papi's life in New York
and the Dominican Republic, joining their partial memories to finally see the whole person. Told in alternate
narratives, this novel in verse is a cathartic exploration of grief, love, and family secrets.
