This debut middle grade story by Mancillas sparkles with 12-year old Salva Sanchez’ realistic feelings of abandonment, anxiety and “new kid”ness as her mom has abruptly left her and she lives at a campground with her divorced dad. Full of musical references and actual band practice dynamics, Sing it Like Celia will grab your heart and cha-cha- cha into your soul. Outstanding!
