Kort biografi
When not writing, they are trying to pet every dog in the world.



Manny and his sister Elena bounced from one foster home to another until they were adopted by the Sullivans. Elena is elated to be adopted by Franklin and Caroline, but Manny is blindsided because neither Elena nor their social worker informed him. His discomfort with his adoptive parents increases when they bring him to Reconciliation, a Christian conversion camp led by the charismatic Deacon who wants to “save” foster children from the evil influences of the outside world. Through flashbacks, readers learn how the trauma of the camp led Manny to end up on the streets and now with the Varela family, he is finding the strength to find out if Elena is still alive. An explosive story, tension builds as Manny’s story and trauma are slowly unveiled through flashbacks to his two stints at Reconciliation. The many allusions to negative events without providing detail, his spiraling thoughts and doubts, fractured memories, reflect what it’s like to be traumatized.… (mer)

LOVED IT!!! Once again Rick Riordan hits a home run. This expansion of Nico and Will's character arcs and backstories are absolutely amazing. I love how much emotional growth both boys show by the end. The story itself was properly scary at the right parts, with descriptions that were easy to follow and picture in my mind. I liked how this story touched on several of the other storylines in the series, and lots of recurring characters reemerged. Riordan's inclusion of LGBTQ characters was brilliantly done, without any overemphasis on it, but still important to the character development and the storyline. As a Queer reader myself, it is really nice and refreshing to have so many other Queer and queer coded people throughout the story to connect to. A+ Mr. Riordan!… (mer)

Gr 9 Up—Manny, a queer teen cast out of his devout religious family, is determined to reunite with his younger
sister, who is still living with their adoptive parents. Oshiro uses a nonlinear time line to tell a compelling story that
explores trauma, abuse, and white saviorism.

This is the book that my 13-17- year- old LGBTQ+ kids chose for their group read for the month of March. I always read their choice a month ahead to be sure that it's not going to cause any issues with them. Our on-site mental health professional has also read the book and given his okay for this age group and will discuss the book with them.

Possible Trigger Warnings: Police and other violence, Racism, Homophobia and Transphobia, Extreme depictions of depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
The story is set in a working-class neighborhood of California, and tells the story of a youth of color, who is diverse in his sexuality and gender, who takes a stand and organizes to challenge the sanctioned violence that the school...with the blessing of the state...thought was a grand idea. California, by no means, is the ONLY state that has taken this's just the one state that the author was familiar with. Moss Jeffries is a student and a black teen who is still grieving for the loss six years earlier of his father by the trigger of the police. Moss struggles with self-doubt along with anxiety-induced panic attacks, and finds comfort in his new relationship with Javier, a Latinx boy who’s just as sweet as he is bold and outgoing. When the school year begins, the resource officer assaults a friend of Moss; Shawna, claiming he suspected that she had drugs...but the students and some of the teachers know that it’s really about her recent decision to fully embrace her transexual identity and her "drugs" were prescribed by her doctor. The metal detectors that the school administration recently installed had resulted in a tragic injury for their friend who was using a wheelchair. Moss and his circle of friends and students of all races and colors, felt that the administration's attitude about the incident was nothing short of appalling, and organized a peaceful protest in order to try and convince the school to "dismantle the violence" that had reared its ugly head and taken a front row seat. They started with a student walkout. They wanted to demonstrate that there would continue to be resistance, and aggrieved groups would continue to gather in solidarity, until a meaningful solution with student struggles being recognized as real and ending with love and acceptance for everyone...regardless of race, religion, or sexuality. Wanda... Moss's mother offers a line that sums the book up fairly well and what my kids based their pick on for this book to be their monthly group read and discussion. From the Book “Anger is a fragile but special gift. But you have to remember it can become a raging monster so, you gotta grasp on to it, hold it tight and use it carefully as your ammunition. You use those feelings of anger and injustice to get things done...changed...understood, instead of just stewing in it." . This is not the first book on similar topics like this for this author who sums it up by saying, "Anger is a Gift that is hella precious, and a hella dope." - I honestly believe I had more problems with the content in the book that any of my young folks will Marcus... one of the 17-year-olds remarked..."This isn't fiction for some. For some people this is "their normal." I can't speak for other countries, but in the United States of America, this should NOT EVER...BE ANYONE'S "NORMAL".
