That Girl on TV Could be Me!

by Leticia Ordaz, art by Juan Calle

"This book is appealing on so many levels. Written without the angst so many books portray when overcoming social barriers, this book is about hard work and perseverance and has no hint of victimism. From the perspective of a minority and a woman, this book is full of hope, ambition, and determination. We can all take away the overall lesson in this book - it takes hard work, failures, determination, and gumption to swim upstream and maintain your dream, dignity, and positivity."

"This story has universal appeal with its vibrant comic book art and bilingual Spanish translation. We share common experiences, no matter where we're from. And we all have unlimited power when we let our imaginations fly."
- Just a Little Creativity
