*“This superb anthology of short stories, comics, and poems is fresh, funny, and full of authentic YA voices revealing what it means to be Mexican American…Not to be missed.”—SLC, starred review



Twenty stand-alone short stories, essays, poems, and more from celebrated and award-winning authors make up this YA anthology that explores the Mexican American experience. With works by Francisco X. Stork, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, David Bowles, Rubén Degollado, e.E. Charlton-Trujillo, Diana López, Xavier Garza, Trinidad Gonzales, Alex Temblador, Aida Salazar, Guadalupe Ruiz-Flores, Sylvia Sánchez Garza, Dominic Carrillo, Angela Cervantes, Carolyn Dee Flores, René Saldaña Jr., Justine Narro, Daniel García Ordáz, and Anna Meriano.


In this mixed-media collection of short stories, personal essays, poetry, and comics, this celebrated group of authors share the borders they have crossed, the struggles they have pushed through, and the two cultures they continue to navigate as Mexican Americans. Living Beyond Borders is at once an eye-opening, heart-wrenching, and hopeful love letter from the Mexican American community to today’s young readers.



A powerful exploration of what it means to be Mexican American.

AWARD-WINNING AND BESTSELLING AUTHORS! This powerhouse cast of authors have received numerous awards and honors, and have been on best-of lists. Among them: Pura Belpré Award winners, William C. Morris Finalists, Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honorees, Tomás Rivera Mexican American Children’s Book Award winners, and many more!



REQUIRED READING: With xenophobia and racism, especially of Latinx and Hispanic communities, at an all-time high, we need this book.



ENGLISH AND SPANISH! Vintage will be publishing this anthology in Spanish.



FIRST OF ITS KIND! This is the first YA Anthology to center Mexican American voices!



ANTHOLOGIES IN THE MARKETPLACE: With the success of anthologies like Black Enough and A Phoenix First Must Burn, there is more room in the marketplace for anthologies than ever!
