Description-

  • SELECTED AS ONE OF THE YOUNG ADULT LIBRARY SERVICES ASSOCIATION'S 2022 TOP TEN AMAZING AUDIOBOOKS FOR YOUNG ADULTS!
    "Breathlessly atmospheric...A gorgeous, hopeful book." —Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of Today Tonight Tomorrow

    The Hating Game meets I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter in this Pura Belpré Award–winning novel that's an irresistible romance starring a Mexican American teen who discovers love and profound truths about the universe when she spends her summer on a road trip across the country.
    When her twin sister reaches social media stardom, Moon Fuentez accepts her fate as the ugly, unwanted sister hidden in the background, destined to be nothing more than her sister's camerawoman. But this summer, Moon also takes a job as the "merch girl" on a tour bus full of beautiful influencers and her fate begins to shift in the best way possible.

    Most notable is her bunkmate and new nemesis, Santiago Phillips, who is grumpy, combative, and also the hottest guy Moon has ever seen.

    Moon is certain she hates Santiago and that he hates her back. But as chance and destiny (and maybe, probably, close proximity) bring the two of them in each other's perpetual paths, Moon starts to wonder if that's really true. She even starts to question her destiny as the unnoticed, unloved wallflower she always thought she was.

    Could this summer change Moon's life as she knows it?

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from August 9, 2021
    Mexican American Moon Fuentez, 17, is dark-skinned and round; her twin, Star, is light-skinned as well as “willowy and still curvy.” Model and purity crusader Star is their single mother’s favorite; Moon, who has had sex, is “the unwanted, ugly sister.” Though talented photographer Moon takes the photos that Star’s 900,000 Fotogram followers love, her other talents—she’s also an earth artist and tarot card reader and designer—don’t attract much notice. But now Moon is spending the summer before college as the “merch girl” on “The Summer Fotogram Influencers for Charity Tour,” which invited Star. Adding insult to injury, Moon is sharing a bunk with merch boy Santiago Philips, the hot but grumpy half-Colombian, half-white brother of Fotogram’s founder. Santiago, who lost a hand in an accident, also has issues with his place in the world, but as he teaches Moon to cook, they develop a bond. In Vasquez Gilliland’s (Sia Martinez and the Moonlit Beginning of Everything) poetic hands, Moon’s strong voice shines amid magic and indigenous knowledge, even as she struggles with her mother, colorism, and fatphobia. Readers will cheer for Moon as she learns to embrace her own beauty and power. Ages 14–up. Agent: Elizabeth Bewley, Sterling Lord Literistic.
