9780763671648: Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass
Críticas:

A nuanced, heart-wrenching and ultimately empowering story about bullying....Interweaving themes of identity, escapism and body image, Medina takes what could be a didactic morality tale and spins it into something beautiful: a story rich in depth and heart...Far more than just a problem novel, this book sheds light on a serious issue without ever losing sight of its craft.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Medina emphasizes Piddy's acute sense of isolation without overplaying it, and she absolutely respects the totality of Piddy's quandary...The message here is that tough and unfair stuff is really tough and unfair, but it's also survivable; that's a takeaway that readers will recognize as both true and valuable.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
Yaqui may think she's tough, but it's Piddy and some of the other female characters, namely Piddy's mother and her mother's flamboyant best friend Lila, who make more lasting impressions. Medina's setting stands out as well...Teens will identify with Piddy's struggle.
--The Horn Book (starred review)
The Latino cultural milieu adds a richness and texture that lifts this up above many problem novels. The plot points are dexterously intertwined, and the characters are distinct. A real bonus for those looking for a bullying book for older readers that is not simplistic.
--School Library Journal (starred review)
A powerful read! As tough and honest as its title, this novel takes an unflinching look at the unjust and cruel consequences of bullying. The story of Piddy Sanchez's transformation is full of the kind of truth teen readers will instantly recognize. I highly recommend it.
--James Howe
I cried and cheered for Piddy in equal measure. Medina perfectly captures the devastating impact of bullying--and the powerful influence of kindness in recovery. I love this book and miss Piddy already!
--Jo Knowles
Poignant, powerful, pull-your-heart-apart sad, snort-out-your-nose funny--a nuanced, honest telling of how courage and choice can triumph over the hell of being bullied.
--Carrie Jones, Author of the Need series and co-editor of Dear Bully
Books about bullying are on the rise as adults grapple with its causes and impact -- and young people struggle to deal with it. This gritty novel manages to transcend the usual earnest fictional treatment by delivering a protagonist who is more than a mere victim and an ending that rings complicatedly true. ... This unflinching novel, with its richly developed main character, deserves a place with two other nuanced bully books for teens: Rita Williams-Garcia's JUMPED, a 2009 National Book Award finalist that explores the mindsets of bully, victim and bystander; and Adam Rex's FAT VAMPIRE, in which a main character confronts her guilt as a cyberbully
--The Washington Post
YAQUI DELGADO WANTS TO KICK YOUR ASS should be taught in schools, read by counselors and parents, and used as a tool to discuss the importance of finding your voice, telling the truth and asking for help.
--Common Sense Media
This is a charming, straightforward, captivating story with universal teen themes that should find a home in all high school fiction collections.
--Library Media Connection

Reseña del editor:

Winner of the 2014 Pura Belpre Author Award
In Meg Medina's compelling new novel, a Latina teen is targeted by a bully at her new school -- and must discover resources she never knew she had.

One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first Piddy is more concerned with trying to find out more about the father she's never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy's life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off or running away? In an all-too-realistic novel, Meg Medina portrays a sympathetic heroine who is forced to decide who she really is.
