Wow to this dedication! It made me cry. I never had grandparents in my life. I can’t wait to read this emotional book. Please enter me for a chance to win a copy.
You’re now in the running, Danielle. I also highly recommend Kalia’s adult memoir, The Late Homecomer.
This is such a wonderful interview with Kalia. I got teary eyed and can’t wait to read this book. My grandmother died when my mother was young, and my father’s mother lived in Mexico. I only met her once, when I was nine. Please enter me for a chance to win a copy.
Sure thing, Gloria — it’s great to hear from you, and I can’t wait to read your book!
