Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"A nuanced and tenderly pitched story." -Elizabeth Acevedo, National Book Award winner and New York Times bestselling author<br> <br> "Ismée Williams has created an engaging urban romance that tackles difficult subjects such as mental health and racism, while celebrating poetry, dance, baseball, and the complexities of Latino families." -Margarita Engle, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Surrender Tree <br> <br> Alex is a baseball player. A great one. His papi is pushing him to go pro, but Alex maybe wants to be a poet. Not that Papi would understand or allow that.<br> <br> Isa is a dancer. She'd love to go pro, if only her Havana-born mom weren't dead set against it...just like she's dead set against her daughter falling for a Latino. And Isa's privileged private-school life--with her dad losing his job and her older brother struggling with mental illness--is falling apart. Not that she'd ever tell that to Alex.<br> <br> Fate--and the New York City subway--bring Alex and Isa together. Is it enough to keep them together when they need each other most?<br>
