Spring 2019 Kids Indie Next List
“One of the most difficult things a kid faces is feeling confident enough to do something new and challenging. It’s made that much harder when English isn’t your first language and you, like our main character, Lety, are challenged to write fantastic descriptions for shelter animals. Lety Out Loud is a book about succeeding when things are tough and making a space for yourself when you’re in a new place. And it’s a book about loving dogs, which means it’s practically a perfect book!”
— Melissa Fox, Watermark Books & Cafe, Wichita, KS
