I sometimes worry that THE SECRET SIDE OF EMPTY won’t go as far as it could because readers might be reluctant to read an “issues book.”  I worked hard to make TSSoE not be about immigration, but about growing up stuck in a situation outside one’s own control (otherwise known as growing up).   When I read a review that “gets” that and appreciates it, it makes my heart sing.

The Children’s and Teens’ Book Connection wrote a review that points out how M.T. and THE SECRET SIDE OF EMPTY are about issues facing just about every teenager.  Click here to read it.  It’s beautiful.
