Cambios GRAPHIC NOVEL

June is a typical, if angst-y, teenager. She loves her friends and her hobbies. And she even likes school (though she might not ever tell you that). One thing that she is not terribly fond of...her looks. June cannot help but to criticize herself every chance she gets, and particularly when she can see her reflection. She is all but convinced that her looks are the sole reason that boys are not interested in her. Enter even MORE self doubt. 

 

One night, June and her friends go out to a local café bookstore for a poetry slam. As usual, June is nervous and antsy about her appearance - that is until she forgets all about how she looks when she, quite literally, bumps into Micha at the event. Micha is tall, attractive and very friendly. And to June’s surprise, he spends a lot of the evening talking to HER!

 

While affable and fun, Micha is also nervous and shy around girls. He is pretty new at all of this kind of socialization, too, mostly because Micha is kinda new at being Micha, never mind that he’s fifteen and a little awkward. But when he crashes into June at the open-mic night, he falls pretty hard - almost immediately - for June.

 

The two teens happily carry their newfound friendship to the next level (Snapchat, of course), and they even make plans to meet up the following week. At least that is the plan until, well, COVID. Undeterred, the two carry on virtually, getting to know one another better. June is astonished that such a great guy would be interested in her - and Micha feels the same about June. 

 

But all is not rosy in COVID-landia, with the pandemic only serving as a backdrop to even more teenage trauma, the kind that is not fixed by a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. The pandemic wreaks havoc in so many ways…  Will truths come out? Will June and Micha figure it out?  And really, will they, or anyone, again ever be able to go out?

    makes me want to be dead

    we are reading this in spanish class, fucking awful. Listening to my spanish (very white) teacher read this makes me want to dig my pencils all the way up my eardrums until I cant hear a thing. When I have to answer questions about these stupid little kids and their soccer obsession that DETErmINE MY GRaDE, I think about dropping out. to all the Spanish teachers out there, making your students read this book should be considered child abuse DO NOT recommend.

    I recommend this product.

    La Mochila

    Love this book for my novice learners. The story is compelling - the reader HAS to keep reading because we want to know how the problem is resolved! In addition to engaging topic/action the underlying struggle that a character has in deciding what to do is great for teens to experience. I also love that it features realistic characters that are portrayed with their humanity.

    I recommend this product.

    Easy to understand

    This story was easy to read without being too repetitive. It is written with the novice student in mind. I love that it ties in another Francophone country for us to explore as well as "le foot"!

    I recommend this product.

    Love El Jersey!

    I use El Jersey to enhance our 8th grade "Living on One" thematic unit after students complete a unit on Copa America. The cultural ties to Guatemala and to the Copa are endless. My students really relate to the characters.

    I recommend this product.

    Great addition to your FVR library

    My level 2 Spanish students enjoy this book in Spanish because it is written with vocab and structure they can understand. They also enjoy how the two worlds come together. These situations can happen to any of us. When students read this book, they are not only learning Spanish, they are learning good character.

    I recommend this product.

    Cute, Simple Rom-Com

    I LOVE that this book features a black female main character. #BlackLivesMatter This is a cute, simple romantic book, written in easily accessible language for your struggling readers. The plot is predictable and uncomplicated, which is what we want from our Rom-Com books and movies, right? This book is constantly being read by my students during FVR. Love it!!

    Fun, quick read :)

    I finally got around to reading this one recently, and it was super fun to read - but it left me wanting more. It has a pretty predictable story line, but the characters are so likable, that you enjoy going on the roller coaster of emotions with them. I LOVE that it features LGBTQ characters. This book is on HIGH circulation in my classroom during FVR!

    I recommend this product.
