Email or call for price.
ISBN: 9780062851345
Published: Dey Street Books - September 3rd, 2019

A heartfelt, and honest look at how the US immigration system is failing everyone, especially the large population of undocumented citizens that we have here working and paying taxes, but are fighting to stay because this is the only home they really remember or know. Vargas does a great job at showing not only his personal situation, but showing how someone in his situation is able to work around the system to work and pay taxes, all while not qualifying to reap the benefits that come from doing so. Highly recommended.

ISBN: 9780062803382
Published: Balzer + Bray - January 5th, 2021

A book that is unfortuneately needed in our world today. Marin is the model student, with the seemingly model life, and on the way to her dream college, until a teacher goes too far. When students and teachers accuse her of misunderstanding the teacher, she finds herself questioning herself, but also fighting against the rules that say it is her fault. "Rules for Being a Girl" is a YA novel that has the ability to open up the conversation about sexism, and how men/women are held to different standards to this day. Most importantly, it shows ways to fight back against it. Highly recommended, and a very important book for teens.
