Confetti Girl by Diana Lopez

8 Dec

Apolonia ‘Lina’ Flores loves socks, science, sports and has a crush on Luis a cute boy at school. She hates English, which is what her dad teaches at the High School. Lina’s mom died last year, and her dad is lost. Lost in books and avoiding reality.Vanessa Cantu is her best friend, who is lately caught up with her secret boyfriend Carlos. Vanessa’s mom is bitter since her divorce. She also teaches, runs a party decorating business and makes cascarones on the side. Cascarones are eggs filled with confetti for Easter, although Ms. Cantu finds they’re perfect for everything. She makes them all the time, and they all eat a lot of eggs as a result.

As the year progresses things start going crazy and pretty soon, Lina’s life and emotions are turning into confetti.
