ANA OF CALIFORNIA, a charming retelling of one of the most beloved books ever, Anne of Green Gables, with a modern and diverse cast of characters, by debut novelist Andi Teran.
Fifteen-year-old orphan Ana (“one n, like fauna—not Anna, like ‘banana’”) Cortez has just blown her last chance with a foster family. It’s a group home next—unless she agrees to leave East Los Angeles for a farm trainee program in Northern California. When she first arrives, Ana can’t tell a tomato plant from a blackberry bush, but Ana comes to love Garber Farm. When she inadvertently stirs up trouble in town, Ana is afraid she might have ruined her last chance at finding a place to belong.
If you’re as big a fan of Anne as I am, you will definitely want to put Ana of California on your summer reading list. And to help you do that, I’m offering one lucky reader a copy of both books!
