“Margaret Elysia Garcia’s is a hauntingly beautiful new voice in American literature. These stories…come together with a kind of magic leaving me inspired and oddly elated.”
— Ariel Gore, Author of The End of Eve

“Margaret Elysia Garcia opens the door to the thrift stores, botanicas, houses, and bedrooms of the sad girls who inhabit them. A lexicon of sad girl culture, readers will go deep into the culture of southeastern Los Angeles, with girls who find comfort in hand-copied zines, La Virgen candles, and the aftermath of earthquakes. The spirit of these sad girls reverberates off the page, ensuring you won’t soon forget them.” –Wendy C. Ortiz, author of Excavation, Hollywood Notebook
