Leonia resident Maria Andreu, a long-time member and volunteer of CoFiA, was recently featured in an article in The Record on her new book, The Secret Side of Empty. This Young Adult novel is based on her own experience growing up as an undocumented teen in the United States. The article, by Kara Yorio, asks, “What is diversity” in the young adult context?

Andreu says, “There’s a lot of conversation in the book world among writers and editors and such about what it means….I think it’s both characters that represent a range of human experience, ethnicity, gender and ability–sometimes that’s not talked about as much, but differently-abled–but also giving fice to authors from different backgrounds, because obviously people with different experiences will tell stories in different ways.”
