First Reviews for STELLA DIAZ and Brooklyn Museum

The first reviews for STELLA DÍAZ HAS SOMETHING TO SAY are in from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY and BOOKLIST and their good ones!

Drawing on her own childhood, Dominguez smoothly blends Spanish and English into the narration and dialogue, Stella’s Mexican-American culture fully informs her perspective and family life, and chunky spot art helps establish the setting. Readers should easily relate to Stella, her struggle to use her voice, and the way she feels caught between worlds at school and at home.” —Publishers Weekly
“Dominguez’s novel introduces a character many readers can relate to, especially bilingual kids or English language learners who struggle with expressing themselves. An excellent, empowering addition to middle grade collections.” —Booklist
Only a little over 2 months to go before it goes out in the world!

On a related note, I'll be at the Brooklyn Museum Children's Book Fair this Saturday from 11am to 4pm.
