STARRED REVIEW! This gentle family story lets readers know that shyness is nothing to worry about.--Kirkus Reviews starred review


Ava's excited to say goodbye to el Año Viejo--but will her shyness keep her from joining in the celebration?

Ava Gabriela is visiting her extended family in Colombia for the holidays. She's excited to take part in family traditions such as making bunuelos, but being around all her loud relatives in an unfamiliar place makes Ava shy and quiet. How will Ava find her voice before she misses out on all the New Year's fun?
