Join us as we celebrate the release of Andrea Beatriz Arango’s young adult novel, Westwood Monster Patrol. A signing will follow.
What would you do if you found a dismembered hand in the woods behind your house?
Ash, Talib, Josefina, Marimar, and Alejandro are pretty used to the not-so-great aspects of life at the Westwood Trailer Park. What they’re not used to is having dead bodies pop up so close to home. Although they’re each dealing with their own complicated problems, they put these aside in order to track down a grisly killer. As the teens delve deeper into a world of haunting visions, bibliomancy, poke tattoos, and even a demon, they are forced to contend with a reality that may be a bit wilder than they anticipated. When one of their own is taken, will they manage to pull together their makeshift crime team and save the day?
Andrea Beatriz Arango is a Latinx writer/teacher obsessed with houseplants. She loves vegan food, board games, and channeling her inner mermaid. Although she’s a voracious reader, Westwood Monster Patrol is the first novel she’s ever written herself. Andrea lives with her boyfriend, her two dogs, and her foster daughter in a city unfortunately too cold to grow plantains or avocados. (Ostia.)
