Loretta Lopez's debut middle grade novel City Girls is a story of finding sanctuary with friends who understand the enormous changes life can throw you when you're 11. What Elisa, Lucia, and Alice see–and judge–of each other from the outside is drastically different from how each girl feels inside. They attend the same classes in the same New York City middle school, but no one knows the hardships that they're individually going through. Narrated by each girl in alternating chapters, City Girls captures the vulnerability of being a middle schooler and the relief and joy of finding friendship where you least expect it. Loretta discusses her work with the Founder and Executive Director of the Brave House, Lauren Blodgett, along with a reading and a book signing.
