Merci Suárez Changes GearsBook - 2018
"Sixth-grader Merci Suarez doesn't have a big house or take fancy vacations like the other kids at Seaward Pines Academy. She's a scholarship student who lives with her extended family in three little houses they call Las Casitas. But everything feels different this year -- and not just at school, where queen bee Edna Santos has set her sights on Merci's school-assigned Sunshine Buddy, Michael Clark. At home, Merci's beloved grandfather, Lolo, has been acting strangely: falling from his bike, calling people by the wrong names, and getting angry over nothing. Merci is worried about Lolo, but no one in her family will tell her what's going on. Just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, something happens that puts everything into perspective and forces Merci's family to finally face the issue they've been avoiding."--
