Stella Diaz Leaps to the Future
Author: Angela Dominguez
From award-winning author Angela Dominguez, the fifth and final novel about Stella Díaz, a shy Mexican American girl who speaks up to make a difference in her community.
Stella is getting ready for her next big step.
This year, she's a fifth grader, which means not only is she one of the big kids in her elementary school but she'll also have to start thinking about middle school. GULP!
Luckily, Stella can count on having her best friends Jenny and Stanley at her side. But when she has a chance to apply for an art program at a magnet school, Stella realizes that her future might hold a lot of big changes.
Thinking about going to a different school than her closest friends, seeing her big brother Nick receiving mail from colleges far away, and then being forced to work on a project with her former bully—suddenly, growing up isn’t quite as fun as Stella first thought.
Is Stella ready for what's next?
