  1. hey, for class i’m reading: return to sender by julia alvarez. it has a couple of great parents in it. tyler’s mom & dad, well, mostly his mom and his grandmother. and also mari’s father is pretty good. i also liked the parents in her book, how tia lola came to (visit) stay.


  2. i have another one, confetti girl by diana lopez has two good parents, who seem to be doing okay by muddling through, which is what parents really do (or at least this one!).
