It's finally here, guys! My first YA book is coming out this summer! :)
It's been more than two years since I started working on this book. It was right in the pandemic when I began to outline this story. I'm delighted to share the cover of my first book in verse, Only Pieces!
Synopsis: Edgar wants nothing more than to live his life out loud. But telling the truth about his sexuality about him is n't so easy in his traditional Mexican-American family, and his Amá about him has made it clear she wo n't accept who he is. Things get even harder when Edgar's macho father returns home after months away, and the house erupts into fighting and simmering tension. Edgar worries what would happen if he told his father the truth about who he is, and feels he'll never fit in anywhere. Then Edgar runs into Alex, a popular football player at school. With Alex, Edgar feels happy and free, believing he might finally pick up all the broken pieces of his heart from him. But falling in love is more complicated than Edgar can ever imagine--and coming out might destroy the only life he's ever known.
