Gabby Rivera is a Bronx-born queer Latinx babe on a mission to create the wildest, most fun stories ever. She's the first Latina to write for Marvel comics, penning the solo series AMERICA about America Chavez, a portal-punching queer Latina powerhouse. In 2017, Gabby was named one of the top comic creators by the SyFy network, and one of NBC's #Pride30 Innovators.
A whirlwind coming-of-age story that leaves one breathless. * Kirkus Reviews * Reflects early adult life . . . in all its messy, confusing splendor. * Publishers Weekly, starred review * Rivera captures both the disappointments and the possibilities that come with realising that your life's solution cannot be figured out by someone else. * The New York Times Book Review * Juliet Takes a Breath is absolutely breathtaking. This is the homegirl I've always wanted to see in literature, made flesh by Rivera's pen. Dazzling, funny as hell, poignant, all the things.
