I'm the author of the young adult novels The Queen of Water (with Maria Virginia Farinango), Red Glass, What the Moon Saw, The Indigo Notebook, The Ruby Notebook , The Jade Notebook, and the middle-grade novels Star in the Forest, The Lightning Queen, and Tree of Dreams. My picture book collaboration with Patricia Gualinga, Stand as Tall as the Trees: How an Amazonian Community Protected the Rain Forest, will be released in Summer, 2023. My YA sci-fi novel, Virch, will be released in Fall 2023. I grew up in Maryland, then moved around for ten years (as student, ESL teacher, and anthropologist), making my home in New Orleans; Aix-en-Provence, France; Oaxaca, Mexico; Tucson; and now, Fort Collins, Colorado, where I'm staying put for a while. ...more

Quotes by Laura Resau  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I see that if you try to fit someone in a box, she might slip through the seams like water and become her own river.”
Laura Resau, The Queen of Water

“Power is a tricky thing, mija. It can lift you up high on its wings and up into the sky where you feel invincible. But sometimes you forget the bigger thing that makes you fly. Without God, without love, you fall. You stop being grateful and humble, and you fall." pg. 230”
Laura Resau, The Indigo Notebook

“Life is the ultimate artistic masterpiece, and it's up to you, the creator, to make it as wildly dazzling as possible.”
Laura Resau, The Indigo Notebook

Kunj HELLO! :)
i'd just like to recommend "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy (Winner of the Booker Prize). I hope you cherish it as much as I did.
ABSOLUTELY MIND-BOGGLING.
