About the Author
Martha Weston was a colorblind illustrator and children’s author who has more than 60 books to her name. Of her work, Weston said, “the best part of writing and illustrating is creating a world of my own—generally a goofy one—and feeling like I am stepping into it." She passed away at the age of 56.
Raw, gritty and acutely tuned to his community, Matt Mendez' debut blends authenticity with poignancy, heartbreak with heartfelt, this emotionally true contemporary story about 2 El Paso teens and a mom of one of the boys, will keep you riveted and engaged. Comparisons to Jason Reynolds, Matt de la Pena and Angie Thomas are accurate but Mendez is a break out star to be watched. This wallop of a tale should be handed to high school kids en masse. - Maureen
