Malu finds herself caught between a Mexican mother who wants her to be the perfect señorita and a music-loving father who helped foster her love of all things punk. After their divorce, Malu and her mother move to Chicago from Florida, where Malu has to start a new school and find her place, ultimately discovering that it’s okay not to fit into a specific box. Follow spunky and rebellious Malu as she navigates middle school, forms a band with her fellow misfits, and creates zines to express herself! This book will remind anyone to embrace your eccentricities and love yourself for all of the things that make you unique. You are guaranteed to fall in love with Malu! (ages 9 to 12)
