Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This compilation of candid essays offers nuanced depictions of the Latinx experience. From the Bronx to El Paso, this collection brings together writers from across the vast Latinx diaspora in the U.S., a setting which itself complicates the journey of coming to terms with that identity. As editor, Fennell's commitment to showcasing myriad experiences is evident in the selection of contributors, which includes household names, such as Meg Medina and Ibi Zoboi, alongside other talented writers who elevate the intersections of their Black, Indigenous, or queer identities, as well as cultures not often represented, like Panamanian and Honduran. The pieces vary in tone and structure and range thematically, including connecting with culture as a transracial adoptee (Mark Oshiro's "Eres Un Pocho"), identifying with an Afro-Latino Spider-Man (Julian Randall's "#JulianforSpiderman"), and living with mental illness (Lilliam Rivera's "More than Nervios"). Each theme is worthy of its own volume, but the standout is undeniably colorism, a crucial topic within the Latinx community, herein brought to light with strength and vulnerability. The deeply personal approach of each contributor will connect with readers of all backgrounds and empower those seeking to define their own experiences."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In her introduction to this exquisitely curated nonfiction YA anthology, editor/contributor Fennell writes, "Too often individuals from the Latinx diaspora are placed into a box, into stereotypes, that society deems necessary to define us. But we are so much more than the myths, than the stereotypes, than what white people and Western ideals, want us to believe." Featuring 15 personal essays and poems from members of the Latinx diaspora, including Elizabeth Acevedo, Meg Medina, and Ibi Zoboi, this anthology not only presents newer voices alongside "old favorites" but also dismantles the idea that there is a single way to express one's Latinx identity or to write about diasporic experiences. From Mark Oshiro's skillful use of repetition and second-person narration in "Eres un Pocho" to the visceral, sharp-edged free verse of Natasha Diaz's "Caution Song," each contributor experiments with structure, narration, and language to candidly explore the complexities of identity and culture. With its inclusion of historically underrepresented Latinx voices, including Afro-Latinx, Caribbean, and Central American perspectives, the book uplifts and celebrates breadth and diversity within a broader community. A standout array of talent. Ages 12--up. Agent: Patrice Caldwell, New Leaf Literary & Media. (Nov.)■"
