They Call Me GŁero

School Library Journal's 2018 Best Books

In this slim but affecting novel in verse, readers meet GŁero, a light-skinned, freckle-faced, copper-headed border kid who crosses into Mexico frequently with his dad to shop and catch up with family. In addition to exploring issues of colorism within the Latinx community, Bowles integrates discussions on immigration and racism. A variety of poetic forms distinguish the vignettes that paint a rich portrait of life on the border.
