Apolonia “Lina” Flores is a sock enthusiast, a volleyball player, a science lover, and a girl who’s just looking for answers. Even with her Dad’s extensive book collection available, she’s having trouble figuring out some very big questions, like why her Dad seems to care about books more than her, why her best friend’s divorced mom is obsessed with making cascarones, and, most of all, why her Mom died last year. Like colors in cascarones, Lina’s life is a rainbow of people, interests, and unexpected changes. This is a well-reviewed book from debut author Diana López. Come meet this lovely and undeniably talented new author and get a copy of Confetti Girl (a perfect middle grade book) signed on Saturday at 1PM.
