Praise for Wanted…
“Ayarbe does not shrink from the gritty, depressing reality of twenty-first-century American race and class issues .... Michal emerges as a clear voice in an important conversation. With just enough romance and a fair amount of suspense, this realistic story prompts dialogue about a difficult topic.”
