Emilly Prado retraces her experience coming of age as a prep-turned-chola-turned-punk in this collection: one-part memoir-in-essays, one-part playlist. Ni de aquí, ni de allá, she tries to find her place in the in between, capturing the painful reality of what it means to lose and find your identity, many times over. For anyone who has ever lost their way, "Funeral for Flaca" unravels the complex layers of an unpredictable life, inviting us into an intimate journey told with humor and heart.
