A review by maria_hossain
Lola and the new school by Keka Novales


An adorable, educational, and heartwarming book about a Guatemalan-American second-grader named Lola, who has to switch school in the middle of the year. Her abuelita and mom give her encouragement to make new friends, take new chances, and try out new things. Slowly, she's able to make friends out of bullies, speak about herself in front of her entire class, and learn to embrace new opportunities in life. A great book with wonderful illustrations.

Thank you, NetGalley and Capstone, Picture Window Books, for providing me with an eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
