Information for teachers
Adriana Ramirez says about this book: "He has been a strong voice and an amazing role model for all LGBTQ kids in my school. He has taught me so much and has made me a better person and a better teacher. Now that he will be gone off to university, his story will stay behind, to be read and shared with other students, so he keeps giving a voice to those that have not found theirs yet. I wrote a book in his honor and inspired by him. The book is named after him. It is written for second year Spanish students, so it can reach more people. It is emotional, beautiful and funny. I cried a lot when writing the last chapter because it was my way of saying goodbye to him, my way of saying that I am going to miss him, my way of saying how much I admire him and how grateful I am that I got to be his teacher."
