Juliet Respira Profundo

By Gabby Rivera

“The queer YA coming of age story of your dreams, but make it Brown! A sweet and hilarious first person account of a young Brown girl entering a new world of queerness [and] adulthood, all while having some of the rose tint wiped from her glasses. Intersectionality is such a cool and absolutely necessary thing to discover.”
