My name is Lila Quintero Weaver and this is my official author site. Thanks for your interest in my work.

NOW AVAILABLE:  My Year in the Middle (Candlewick Press, 2018), a children’s novel. 

SO many good things have come with the release of this new book!

Here is what Shelf Awareness wrote about My Year in the Middle in its STARRED review: “Weaver, who previously published a graphic memoir called Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White, writes vividly about the spaces in the middle, between black and white. Any reader who has struggled to find a safe and happy place between polarities will appreciate Weaver’s deep understanding of just how difficult–and rewarding–this can be.” (Read the whole review here.)

Bookish.com named My Year in the Middle one of its hot new releases for the week of July 10. 

Culture Vulture listed it as one of 8 Biggest New Books of July 2018. Quite an honor! 

I’m also the author-illustrator of Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White, and the co-translator of its Spanish edition, Cuarto oscuro: Recuerdos en blanco y negro. Both were published by The University of Alabama Press.
