9781086186703Andreina Perez & Tito, Piece of Heaven at Book Soup

Author Andreina Perez will present and sign her book, Tito, Piece of Heaven.

This is the story of an ordinary girl with no extraordinary abilities, on the contrary, she was quiet and lonely, her outfits were colorful to its maximum that the only thing that would stand out was the misery within the reflection in her eyes; only visible to those brave enough to see through her beyond what the eyes could reach. This ordinary girl without any ability is me: Amy.
