Maria Luísa (who prefers to be called Malú) loves punk rock. She does NOT love her mom's attempts at helping her know and appreciate her Mexican heritage. So when Malú and her mom (whom she calls "SuperMexican") move to Chicago for a two year stay, she's naturally upset. But when the school principal bans Malú and her new friends from playing in the school talent show because they're too loud, she finds she might be able to combine her love for punk rock AND her Mexican heritage to make a powerful statement. Interspersed with Malú's handmade zines, this is a story that will resonate with many kids struggling with being who they want to be and meeting parent expectations. May also inspire some to create zines of their own!
