Meet the Authors
Eleven-year-old Carolina's summer--and life as she knows it--is upended when Papi loses his job, and she and her family must move from Puerto Rico to upstate New York. Now Carolina must attend Silver Meadows camp, where her bossy older cousin Gabriela rules the social scene. She finds a friend in Jennifer, a fellow artist, and gets another welcome surprise when she stumbles upon a long-abandoned cottage near camp--a perfect haven for making art. There, Carolina begins to reclaim the parts of the life she loved in Puerto Rico and forget about how her relationships with her parents have changed.
