I just read and reviewed Down To The Bone by Mayra Lazara Dole. And today, I surprised to get a comment from her. I've never communicated with her so it was very cool to hear from her.

Many thanks, as always, to my awesome fellow postergirlz for selecting additional books! From this month's rec reads, I've already read Emily Goldberg Learns to Salsa (go Micol!), Estrella's Quinceanera (much fun), The Little Prince, and The Surrender Tree.

I am so excited to read these! I'm loving all the Little Prince refs in RED GLASS, which make me want to dive into that one again very soon!
