17 yr old Marisol Morales and her 12 yr old sister Gabi have been caught crossing the border looking for Asylum in the U.S. and the only way to get asylum is if Marisol participated in a study helping people deal with their PTSD.

There is SO much I want to say about this book but don‘t have enough space. Such an impactful story, written with great characters and the author did an amazing job shooting the contrast between Marisol‘s life and Rey‘s.

The new books I‘ve gotten in the last week.

I found the amazing graphic novel edition of Speak at Powell‘s last week. I love the artist since I saw her work in Through the Woods.

I preorder The Grief Keeper as soon as I saw @kamoorephoto review of it. Thanks for sharing!

And Emergency Contact was delivered today! I‘ve seen such great things about it on litsy.

4/5?
This was beautiful written. So vivid and realistic. The characters were well developed. I enjoyed the sisters relationship. Having a sister myself I related to them. And the LGTBQIA romance was well done too. The concept of a "greif keeper" and ridding people of their sadness was so interesting! Really the whole story was very engrossing.
Available on Tuesday June 11th!

This book is blowing me away.
17-year old Marisol and her younger sister Gabi have crossed the U.S. border illegally, fleeing a life in El Salvador where they were frightened for their lives and their brother had just been murdered. Marisol‘s asylum request is denied but she soon is asked to become a ‘grief keeper,‘ and this is where a story about the complexities of immigration, grief, and sexual orientation really comes alive.
