Editor Sarah Cortez and Arte Público Press, the world’s largest publisher of U.S. Hispanic voices, will bring together today’s most exciting Latino/a fiction writers in an anthology of original mystery fiction for the YA reader. This volume, tentatively entitled "You Don't Have A Clue," will feature all types of mystery short stories. There will be stories guaranteed to pull in the reluctant reader and stories to delight the high school student gearing up for admissions tests. A Teacher’s Guide will facilitate classroom use by teachers and library media specialists.

Join us in creating the first anthology of edgy, fast-paced mystery fiction written by Latino/a authors for high school students.
