Postcards From Pismo is the story of Felix Maldonado, a sensitive ten-year-old living in the central coast region of California. What begins as a school project blossoms into a powerful friendship when Felix writes a letter to an American soldier serving in Afghanistan. Their pen pal friendship grows more important than ever when Felix's older brother, Quin, enlists in the military to raise money for college. Told entirely through Felix's letters, emails, and postcards to the soldier, the novel traces the boy's growth as he grapples with bullies, the fear arising from his brother's enlistment, and the meaning of bravery itself. Humorous, timely, and deeply moving, this unforgettable tale is not to be missed.
