Author Nina Moreno knows what it’s like to be the new kid. When she was 10, Moreno and her family moved from Miami, Florida, to a small town outside Atlanta, Georgia. She was the only Latina at her new school. Feeling different was tough.
Moreno has written two books about Maggie Diaz. Like Moreno, Maggie is Cuban American and from Miami. Everyone in the seventh-grader’s life seems to know what they’re good at. To figure out her passion, Maggie joins every club and team she can. But trying to fit in with everyone is pretty confusing!
