    Ilegalmente tuyo : la comedia de mi vida

    Agustin, Rafael, author.

    Growing up, Rafa’s parents didn't want him to feel different because, as his mom told him: "Dreams should not have borders." But when he tried to get his driver's license during his junior year of high school, his parents were forced to reveal his immigration status. Suddenly, the kid who modeled his entire high school career after American TV shows had no idea what to do -- there was no episode of Saved by the Bell where Zack gets deported! While his parents were relieved to no longer live a lie in front of their son, Rafa found himself completely unraveling in the face of his uncertain future. Illegally Yours is a heartwarming, comical look at how this struggling Ecuadorian immigrant family bonded together to navigate Rafa's school life, his parents' work lives, and their shared secret life as undocumented Americans, determined to make the best of their always turbulent and sometimes dangerous American existence. From using the Ricky Martin/Jennifer Lopez “Latin Explosion” to his social advantage in the ‘90s to how his parents—doctors in their home country of Ecuador—were reduced to working menial jobs in the US, the family's secret became their struggle, and their struggle became their hustle. An alternatingly hilarious and touching exploration of belonging and identity, Illegally Yours revolves around one very simple question: What does it mean to be American?....

    Criaturas luminosas

    Van Pelt, Shelby, author.

    After Tova Sullivan’s husband died, she began working the night shift at the Sowell Bay Aquarium, mopping floors and tidying up. Keeping busy has always helped her cope, which she’s been doing since her eighteen-year-old son, Erik, mysteriously vanished on a boat in Puget Sound over thirty years ago. Tova becomes acquainted with curmudgeonly Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus living at the aquarium. Marcellus knows more than anyone can imagine but wouldn’t dream of lifting one of his eight arms for his human captors—until he forms a remarkable friendship with Tova. Ever the detective, Marcellus deduces what happened the night Tova’s son disappeared. And now Marcellus must use every trick his old invertebrate body can muster to unearth the truth for her before it’s too late. ....

    Eyaculación responsable : una nueva forma de pensar el aborto y la educación sexual

    Blair, Gabrielle Stanley, author.

    A new way of thinking about abortion and sexual education. Gabrielle Blair offers a provocative reframing of the issue of abortion and sex education. In a series of 28 brief arguments, she deftly argues for shifting the abortion debate away from control and legislation over women's bodies and instead directing the focus toward where it can be most effective: absolute responsibility of men in preventing unwanted pregnancies. Very readable, accessible, funny and incontrovertible, Blair builds her argument by guiding readers through the basics of fertility (men are fifty times more fertile than women), the unfair burden placed on them when it comes to preventing pregnancy (90% of the birth control market is for women), the wrong stigmas around birth control for men (condoms make sex less pleasurable, vasectomies are scary and emasculating ) and the reality that men, who are fertile 100% of the time, take little or no responsibility for preventing pregnancies. The result is a compelling read to see sexual education and abortion from a different perspective, which has been a bestseller in the United States.....
