      I grew up seeing hypocrisy pretty much everywhere I looked I still see it I believe it must be conquered I think love, hope, romance and our imaginations are the best way to do it Most of all I believe that kids get the short end of the stick We pay lip service to the idea that they are the future, but we short change them Kids don t have the vote They don t have lobbyists because they don t have money Everything about their lives is determined by adults, often to their detriment I write about kids who populate the margins of society, who have something big to face in life, who take action on their own behalf, and who are aided along the way by adults who live on the margins themselves I write about the world we live in, and the world inside my head They tend to be quite different places My latest novel for kids and parents, GROWING UP RITA, is the story of a mother and daughter caught up with the problems of immigration MELONHEAD and BEEKMAN S BIG DEAL are now available in paperback and as ebooks I attended Trinity School in New York City, and the University of Rhode Island, where I met my wife We live in Seattle, Washington with our dog, Banjo.

    • Here & in Finding Stinko, de Guzman's young protagonists have to start fending for themselves in a world of less-than-stellar adults. Here the father is amiable and supportive, but not quite financially solvent. A fast read set in New York City for young readers navigating their growing independence. 6th - 7th grade.
