A fierce, beautiful, and unflinching memoir from a wildly talented debut author

While growing up in housing projects in Puerto Rico and Miami Beach, Jaquira Díaz found herself caught between extremes: as her family split apart and her mother battled schizophrenia, she was surrounded by the love of her friends; as she longed for a family and home, she found instead a life upended by violence. From her own struggles with depression and sexual assault to Puerto Rico's history of colonialism, Ordinary Girls vibrates with music and lyricism. Díaz triumphantly maps a way out of despair toward love and hope to become her version of the girl she always wanted to be.

Jaquira Diaz was born in Puerto Rico. Her work has been published in Rolling Stone, the Guardian, the Fader, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine, and has been included in The Best American Essays 2016. She is the recipient of two Pushcart Prizes, an Elizabeth George Foundation grant, and fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Kenyon Review, and the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing. She lives in Miami Beach with her partner, the writer Lars Horn.

Almarie Guerra is a bilingual actor based in Los Angeles. She was born in Puerto Rico and was raised in the U.S. from the age of eight. She grew up on amazing Latin American literature and developed a love for the spoken word through nightly storytelling rituals with her family. Now, she gets to share her passion with listeners from all over the world by narrating audiobooks as well as working in theater, commercials, TV, and film. Her favorite narration opportunities, however, occur at bedtime each night, when she reads stories to her two girls.
