The Gallery of Unfinished GirlsBook - 2017
Mercedes Moreno is an artist. At least, she thinks she could be, even though she hasnt been able to paint anything worthwhile in the past year. Her lack of inspiration might be because her abuela is in a coma. Or the fact that Mercedes is in love with her best friend, Victoria, but is too afraid to admit her true feelings. Despite Mercedess creative block, art starts to show up in unexpected ways. A piano appears on her front lawn one morning, and a mysterious new neighbor invites Mercedes to paint with her at the Red Mangrove Estate. At the Estate, Mercedes can create in ways she hasnt ever before. But Mercedes cant take anything out of the Estate, including her new-found clarity. Mercedes cant live both lives forever, and ultimately she must choose between this perfect world of art and truth and a much messier reality.
