  • Neverforgotten, Alejandra Algorta, Aida Salazar (Transl.)
    Levine Querido, 9781646140947, August 31, 2021 (Middle Grade)

    Neverforgotten is about a boy, a bicycle, a city. Movement. Growth. Transformation.  It’s a story that absorbs the reader, that through words and drawings carries us to Bogotá while at the same time brings us to our own thoughts and memories of moments when our lives shifted.”

    -Connie Griffin, Bookworks, Albuquerque, NM

    “Columbian poet Alejandra Algorta has authored a jewel of a book. From the first to the last line I was entranced by the story of Fabio, a young boy who lives every day to fly like a bird through the streets of Bogotá on his bicycle, leading a crew of friends behind him. Then, one day he forgets how to ride a bike and his soul comes crashing down. This is a beautiful and special story for young and old readers everywhere.”

    -Brein Lopez, Children’s Book World, Los Angeles, CA
