Teri Lesesne has included Soul Enchilada in her Texas Library Association presentation, “Best New YA Books.” It’s, erm, slide #55. But who’s counting? You’ll want to see the whole list.

Cindy Pon’s SILVER PHOENIX received a starred review from Booklist! W00t! This is an incredible novel. On sale 4/28.
