Product Details


“Firmly rooted in era and place, interwoven with Spanish and filled with vivid, frequently gritty, sensory details and suspenseful subplots, the novel powerfully depicts Rosa’s emotional voice, deep love for Gloria, and struggles toward understanding, acceptance, and joy.”—Publishers Weekly

“Realistic with a beautifully hopeful ending, Torres’ historical novel will dance its way into readers’ hearts.”—Booklist

“A powerful story of overcoming expectations with a hopeful ending.”—Kirkus

“With masterfully drawn characters, complex relationships, and gripping prose, Torres has given the world a story that will cling to hearts and minds long after its final words. Hauntingly gorgeous.”
—Laura Taylor Namey, New York Times-bestselling author of A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow

“Torres crafts characters so real I can feel their heartbeats as strong as Prince’s ”Purple Rain” guitar solo. You won’t forget this incredibly compelling story that goes beyond a girl just finding out who she is—but how to be the change the world isn’t ready for yet. A must read for anyone with a heart.”
—Dante Medema, author of The Truth Project and Message Not Found
