Meet Maria E. Andreu:
When Maria is not writing or speaking, you can find her reading post-apocalyptic fiction and singing to her plants or organizing her beautiful wooden writing boxes. She wishes she zip-lined more. When she plays "Two Truths and a Lie," she'll tell you the story of how she was once almost eaten by lions. But she won't tell you if that's the truth or the lie.

A fresh, joyful YA novel that is layered with themes of immigration, cultural identity, and finding your voice in any language.
Sixteen-year-old Ana is a poet and a lover of language. Except that since she moved to New Jersey from Argentina, she can barely find the words to express how she feels.
At first Ana just wants to return home. Then she meets Harrison, the very cute, very American boy in her math class, and discovers the universal language of racing hearts. But when she begins to spend time with Neo, the Greek Cypriot boy from ESL, Ana wonders how figuring out what her heart wants can be even more confusing than the grammar they’re both trying to master. After all, the rules of English may be confounding, but there are no rules when it comes to love.
With playful and poetic breakouts exploring the idiosyncrasies of the English language, Love in English is witty and effervescent, while telling a beautifully observed story about what it means to become “American.”
