Product Details

Praise

“Extensive character development and masterful scene setting in the first half of the book pay off in a faster-paced second half that sees Sofía grow to understand issues surrounding immigration, race, class, and privilege more deeply. Readers will root for Sofía as she learns to use her voice to advocate for both herself and others. Bighearted, nuanced, and insightful.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Centers an immigrant diasporic experience through the lens of a girl working to fit in, and struggling to square her privilege with experiences of intersectional discrimination.”—Publishers Weekly

“Full of heart and characters that jump off the page. [This is] a unique and honest view into the experience of the Cuban diaspora in the United States from a young protagonist’s perspective. It made me care deeply about Sofía as she awakened to issues around her, such as gentrification, privilege, immigration, and history. Timely and necessary. –Yamile Saied Méndez, Pura Belpré-winning author of Furia
 
“From the very first page, I found myself  rooting for Sofía as she found her voice and made some good trouble along the way!” —Tami Charles, New York Times bestselling author of All Because You Matter and Like Vanessa
 
“A sensitive portrayal of a Cuban American girl’s efforts to become a ballet dancer and an advocate for immigrants.” —Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Surrender Tree  
 
“A heartwarming novel about a girl finding her place. The themes of immigration and speaking up for what you believe in are skillfully woven into a story that feels timely and important, but no less entertaining and relatable. I loved watching Sofía grow and discover her strengths and know she will inspire many others.” –Hena Khan, author of Amina’s Voice and Amina’s Song
