Merci Suárez Changes Gears

Merci Suárez Changes Gears

Author: Meg Medina Narrator: Frankie Corzo Release Date: 01/09/2018

Thoughtful, strong-willed sixth-grader Merci Suarez navigates difficult changes with friends, family, and everyone in between in a resonant new novel from Meg Medina. Merci Suarez knew that sixth grade would be different, but she had no idea just how different. For starters, Merci has never been like the other kids at her private school in Florida, because she and her older brother, Roli, are scholarship students. They don’t have a big house or a fancy boat, and they have to do extra community service to make up for their free tuition. So when bossy Edna Santos sets her sights on the new boy who happens to be Merci’s school-assigned Sunshine Buddy, Merci becomes the target of Edna’s jealousy. Things aren't going well at home, either: Merci’s grandfather and most trusted ally, Lolo, has been acting strangely lately — forgetting important things, falling from his bike, and getting angry over nothing. No one in her family will tell Merci what's going on, so she’s left to her own worries, while also feeling all on her own at school. In a coming-of-age tale full of humor and wisdom, award-winning author Meg Medina gets to the heart of the confusion and constant change that defines middle school — and the steadfast connection that defines family.

There is a cute guy who started working with her at the deli, but is dating even worth the risk when the killer especially likes picking off couples who stay out too late?

"Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass." That's what some girl tells Piddy Sanchez one morning before school. Too bad Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui Delgado is, let alone what she's done to piss her off.

But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy's life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off and running away from her problems? In this poignant and all-too-realistic story from award-winning author Meg Medina, Piddy is forced to decide exactly who she is versus who others are trying to make her become - and ultimately discovers a rhythm that is all her own.

The Girl Who Could Silence the Wind

Author: Meg Medina Narrator: Cristina Panfilio Release Date: 01/03/2012

Though everyone in the village of Tres Montes thinks Sonia Ocampo is blessed, she knows she is nothing but a fraud. She's spent her life listening to the hopes and wishes of her neighbors and family, but when a classmate dies despite her prayers, she is forced to realize that she has no special powers-no way to prevent bad things from happening.

But when misfortune falls upon her family, she must confront the truth, no matter how difficult. With a hint of magical realism and romance, Meg Medina weaves a poignant tale about a girl who dares to face life's harsh truths and find power within herself.
