In this novel in verse, Celi Rivera lives in Oakland with her parents and younger brother. She loves to dance bomba to her best friend ("best echo") Magda's drums, she feels tingly around her crush Iván, and she does NOT want the moon ceremony her mother is planning for when Ceci has her first period. When Magda delicately comes out as nonbinary, Ceci promises to support her friend - but when Iván makes fun of Magda's (now Mar or Marco's) boyishness, Ceci doesn't defend him. She feels guilty, but she continues to see Iván - and her mother continues to plan the moon ceremony over Ceci's wishes. When Ceci's period does arrive, however, it's Marco who rescues her from embarrassment, and their mothers have a ceremony for them both - and despite Ceci's initial resistance, her feelings change.

An authentic, sensitive portrait of a character at a tender, transitional age, learning to embrace and feel pride in her cultural heritage (Ceci is Black-Puerto Rican-Mexican).

Sometimes we do things
we don't mean
when we're hurt.

This is a coming of age novel that is written in verse. Celi Rivera is an 11 year old who is growing up in Oakland. He mother wants to throw her a celebration of her first period with a moon ceremony. Her mom wanted her to get this opportunity since she did not have her own moon ceremony.

Celi is 11 years old and lives in Oakland. She and her best friend Magda are active in a Puerto Rican bomba dance group. Celi’s mother tells her she is on the verge of experiencing her first moon (menstruation). She wants it to be a positive experience for Celi, and looks forward to celebrating her moon ceremony. Celi is mortified by her mother’s enthusiasm and would just as soon not talk about it. She would rather dance bomba and catch the eye of cute Iván from the capoeira class at the cultural center. But her attraction to Iván threatens her friendship with Magda, who is on the verge of making an important change of her own. ( )
