Award-winning author Diana López returns to her middle-grade sweet spot in this delightful novel perfect for fans of Wendy Mass, Charise Mericle Harper, and Angela Cervantes. You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your primas... Luna Ramos has more cousins than she can count, and even though her mom says that makes her lucky, Luna knows that every time she gets in trouble, one of her primas is responsible.But when Luna locks her know-it-all cousin Claudia in the bathroom at their cousin's quinceañera, Luna has no one to blame but herself. Her punishment? No hats for a whole month-which is a big deal because Luna's always been embarrassed by her hair, and hats make her feel more comfortable.To make things even worse, Claudia is transferring to her school, and now she'll have a chance to tattle on Luna even more than she already does! Her grandmother offers some sage advice, but since it's in Spanish, Luna gets it all wrong, and when the kids at school begin making fun of Claudia, Luna must decide what matters more: family or her reputation.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Luna is a spunky and tenacious fifth-grader who has the worst case of cousin rivalry you've ever read. First, she doesn't get picked to be in a different cousin's quinceañera Claudia gets chosen. Then she finds out the exasperating Claudia is being transferred to her school. And then she ends up in her very classroom, after which she tattles to Luna's mom about everything Luna does wrong. But after Luna discovers that Claudia is being teased because of the size of her nose, Luna must decide whether or not to defend her. Luna is a great character for young readers who feel like they can't catch a break or maybe don't fit in all the time. López (Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel, 2013) offers a sweetly poignant novel about learning to love your family. Yes, Luna does things her way and sometimes gets in trouble for it but her heart is in the right place. A good multicultural addition to any library or classroom.--Rosie Camargo Copyright 2018 Booklist"
