Accidental Love | [Gary Soto]

Accidental Love

It all starts when Marisa picks up the wrong cell phone. When she returns it to Rene, she feels curiously drawn to him. But Marisa and Rene aren’t exactly a match made in heaven. For one thing, Marisa is a chola; she’s a lot of girl, and she’s not ashamed of it. Skinny Rene gangles like a sackful of elbows and wears a calculator on his belt. In other words, he’s a geek. So why can’t Marisa stay away from him?

What the Critics Say

"[A] warmhearted, humorous novel… It’s hard not to like spunky Marisa and appreciate the fresh point of view she brings." (School Library Journal)

"Soto remains true to his community, painting a picture of Marisa’s family, school, and neighborhood and interspersing Spanish language throughout this realistic romance between two young narrators learning to define themselves." (VOYA)

"Soto accurately depicts popularity and stereotypes in high school while conveying a melting pot of cultures. The teens’ struggles shine through with simplicity and authenticity. Soto…successfully bridges gender and cultural issues that affect teens." - (Publishers Weekly)
