Maria E. Andreu

The Secret Side of Empty

As a straight-A student with a budding romance and loyal best friend, M.T.’s life seems as American as apple-pie. But M.T. hides a fact to the contrary: her status as an undocumented immigrant.

With senior year of high school kicking into full swing, M.T. sees her hopes for a “normal” future unraveling. And it will take discovering a sense of trust in herself and others for M.T. to stake a claim in the life that she wants.

Author Maria E. Andreu draws from her personal experience to tell a story that is timely, relevant, and universally poignant.
