Winner 2019 Stonewall Book Award-Mike Morgan & Larry Romans Children’s & Young Adult Literature Award.
"The first and most enduring award for GLBT books is the Stonewall Book Awards, sponsored by the American Library Association's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table. Since Isabel Miller's Patience and Sarah received the first award in 1971, many other books have been honored for exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience." -- American Library Association.
Contents Note Reviewed by Alicia Heymel for Education: journal of the New South Wales Teachers Federation volume 99 no. 5, August 2018, p.26.
Summary Note While riding the subway home from the pool with his Abuela one day, Julian notices three women spectacularly dressed up. Their hair billows in brilliant hues, their dresses end in fishtails, and their joy fills the train car. When Julian gets home, daydreaming of the magic he's seen, all he can think about is dressing up just like the ladies in his own fabulous mermaid costume: a butter-yellow curtain for his tail, the fronds of a potted fern for his headdress. But what will Abuela think about the mess he makes -- and even more importantly, what will she think about how Julian sees himself?
