To Be Maya
Fifteen-year-old Maya loves her mother, but she’s also embarrassed by her. Maya’s mother immigrated to the US from Guatemala years before Maya was born. But she still clings tightly to her roots and traditions. When lacrosse star Josh Williams suddenly expresses interest in Maya, she’s excited to go on a real date. But Maya’s mother isn’t on board. Can Maya make her mother see she’s ready to grow up and have more freedom? And can she do it before Josh loses interest and moves on to someone who isn’t held down by their Guatemalan heritage?
