Touching Snow: I Want To Know More

National Book Award nominee M. Sindy Felin’s Touching Snow is the story of a seventh-grader from Haiti who moves to a New York suburb. "The author writes with insight about the realities of immigrant life," an SLJ reviewer wrote. I googled first-novelist Felin and couldn't find much except for this lovely photo on the Simon and Schuster site. I want to read it soon, but as I'm under deadline right now, can someone tell me more?
