Languages spoken: Spanish Books by Kevin Sullivan:
Lourdes “Lulu” Quintana-Salazar was born and raised in Michigan. Now she has to decide whether to live with her deported parents in Mexico or attend a better school in Michigan, where she feels at home. There are thousands of kids like her in Mexico — U.S. citizen children of undocumented parents who have been deported. And the numbers are expected to spike under the Trump administration.
But no one — not those who feared him nor those who sympathized — glimpsed the full malevolence brewing inside Nikolas Cruz’s heart until police say he walked into a suburban South Florida high school and carried out one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings.
