Everything Within and in Between by Nikki Barthelmess
A teen named Ri Fernández struggles to find and claim her identity in Nikki Barthelmess's moving Everything Within and in Between. Raised by her strict Mexican grandmother, Ri has been forbidden from learning Spanish in favor of chasing her grandma's version of the American dream. But Ri wants nothing more than to get in touch with her heritage, even if it means defying her grandmother's wishes and reaching out to the mother who left her so many years ago.
