Andrea Beatriz Arango Honestly? I work mostly with teens of color (and am an avid reader of YA), and I was just tired of not seeing enough representation in the YA market.…moreHonestly? I work mostly with teens of color (and am an avid reader of YA), and I was just tired of not seeing enough representation in the YA market. I love magical realism and fantasy, so I wanted to create a FUN series that would have the kind of diversity that is naturally present in our country. I don't think I read a single YA book with a Latinx main character when I was growing up. Thankfully, things are getting waaaaay better, and now I get to help make it even more so! (less)

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Voici mon secret. Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince

André Aciman
“Did I want him to act? Or would I prefer a lifetime of longing provided we both kept this little Ping-Pong game going: not knowing, not-not-knowing, not-not-not-knowing? Just be quiet, say nothing, and if you can't say "yes," don't say "no," say "later." Is this why people say "maybe" when they mean "yes," but hope you'll think it's "no" when all they really mean is, Please, just ask me once more, and once more after that?
André Aciman, Call Me by Your Name

Haruki Murakami
“I was always hungry for love. Just once, I wanted to know what it was like to get my fill of it -- to be fed so much love I couldn't take any more. Just once. ”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
