It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: ALL THE STARS DENIED by Guadalupe García McCall + Giveaway (US Only)

All-the-Stars-Denied-Final-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for ALL THE STARS DENIED by Guadalupe García McCall, releasing on September 2018 from Tu Books. Before we get to the reveal, here's a note from Guadalupe:

Hola, Beloved Readers and Lovers of Literature… I am so excited to share the cover of my latest novel, ALL THE STARS DENIED. This is such an important book for me. First of all, because it is a story of “resistance on the border,” and second because it’s the sequel to SHAME THE STARS. I hope this beautiful cover inspires you to pick up the book, read it, and fall in love with Joaquín and Dulceña’s spirited, tender-hearted daughter, Estrella. Fifteen year-old Estrella is a dreamer and activist. She longs for justice and begs her grandmother in heaven (the revolutionary heroine known as La Estrella in the first novel) for the courage and wisdom to help her family get through their illegal deportation to Mexico City. Like her father, Estrella is a poet, but her poems are filled with imagery and love from the natural world, the foliage and fauna of the Texas borderlands, the world where she knows she belongs.

About the Book

In the heart of the Great Depression, Rancho Las Moras, like everywhere else in Texas, is gripped by the drought of the Dust Bowl, and resentment is building among white farmers against Mexican Americans. All around town, signs go up proclaiming "No Dogs or Mexicans" and "No Mexicans Allowed.”


When Estrella organizes a protest against the treatment of tejanos in their town of Monteseco, Texas, her whole family becomes a target of "repatriation" efforts to send Mexicans "back to Mexico" --whether they were ever Mexican citizens or not. Dumped across the border and separated from half her family, Estrella must figure out a way to survive and care for her mother and baby brother. How can she reunite with her father and grandparents and convince her country of birth that she deserves to return home? There are no easy answers in the first YA book to tackle this hidden history.

Well, the cover is stunning, but even so, it sill undersells a storyline as compelling as this one, IMHO! I never heard about this book before, and now I feel it's a must-read! It sounds like a pageturner of a plot involving some historical (though obviously deeply relevant in the present) human experience I know too darn little about! Thanks. --Kara S
