Como una marmota asustada, los shorts de gimnasia se meten en mi trasero.

¿No te gustaría leer un libro que comenzara así?

Lupe Wong quiere ser la primera mujer lanzadora en las Grandes Ligas. Durante toda su infancia, ha defendido diversas causas. Algunas, dignas . . . como la expansión de las opciones de raza en los exámenes escolares. Otras, menos dignas . . . como quejarse al canal BBC sobre la duración entre temporadas de Doctor Who.

Lupe necesita una A en todas las clases para conocer a su lanzador favorito, Fu Li Hernández, un mexi-chino como ella. ¿Qué pasa cuando el baile de country llega al gimnasio? Lupe no se quedará con los brazos cruzados.

No es para nada habitual que el debut de un libro presente a un personaje tan memorable, y con tanto humor e inteligencia emocional, come Lupe. Hasta los fanáticos del baile de country estarán de acuerdo . . .
Donna Barba Higuera creció en el centro de California rodeada por polvo y campos petroleros. Finalmente, cambió el polvo de California por las nieblas del Noreste del Pacífico. Vive en Washington con su esposo, sus cuatro hijos, tres perros y una rana.

Donna Barba Higuera grew up dodging dust devils in the oilfields of Central California. She has spent her entire life blending folklore with her experiences into stories that fill her imagination. Now she weaves them to write picture books and novels.

Donna eventually traded the dust of Central California for the mists of the Pacific Northwest. She lives there with her husband, four children, three dogs and three two frogs. She is currently working on her debut picture book and next middle grade novel.
