Praise

A Booklist Best Book of 2022

★“Tense, raw and gorgeously written, Diamond Park will resonate with any reader who, in a world filled with ample reason for pessimism, strives instead for optimism.”—Book Page, starred review

★ “Packs a punch while managing to wrest tough situations into the realm of hope.”—Booklist, starred review

★”An important title displaying the complexities of Latinx culture and of finding a sense of self set against the backdrop of trying to catch a murderer, this story will keep readers on the edge with danger lurking behind every corner.”—SLJ, starred review

“Phillippe Diederich’s Diamond Park is a powerful novel about teenagers forced to grow up too soon, kids dealing with adult problems. Gripping and expertly paced, this literary thriller is about so many things—the implicit and explicit violence of the U.S.-Mexico border, the nuances of the Mexican-American experience, racial injustice. And most importantly family and friendship.”—Jaquira Díaz, author of Ordinary Girls

“Dark, compelling, and surprisingly hopeful.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Diederich interweaves Mexican American culture and murder in a rollicking road trip adventure that offers action without sacrificing emotional heft… Flaco’s realistic narrative voice offers a unique and thought-provoking, conversational perspective on class, mental health, and misogyny.“—Publishers Weekly
