  1. So, is this an updated version? I heard that you are coming to my school, Wilson Middle School in Exeter, CA sometime this month. Are you really coming?

  2. I love, love your book. Thank you for writing it. I don’t think I have ever related to character as much as I did with Gabi. I wish this book had been out when I was a teen. Keep escribiendo!

  3. I’m using your book at my school’s creative writing h.s. class. The students and I LOVE it. Your voice is so authentic. Do you ever come speak to schools? We’re in Los Angeles.


    1. Hello John,

      I do visit schools! If you want to send me a message via the contact form, I’d be happy to talk about it with you. Thank you for using my book and I am so happy to hear that your students love it!
