Us, in Progress: Short Stories about Young Latinos - Lulu Delacre

Staff Pick

The Latinx of Us, In Progress: Short Stories About Young Latinos (Harper, $16.95) are sometimes misunderstood, occasionally threatened, often quick-witted, and always engaging. Tweens and teens with disparate countries of origin but the same home country—the United States—come alive in each well-crafted story, all of which were inspired by real events. Refranes, commonly used Latin American sayings, appear throughout the text and are presented with their English translations in the book’s final pages along with notes on the stories’ origins. Author/illustrator Lulu Delacre’s mixed-media portraits of each character further highlight the multiplicity of viewpoints contained in this powerful volume. Ages 11-13.
