Mambo Lips: A Memoir of a Girl Who Found Strength in Being Different by Joie Lamar
Mambo Lips is the story of a young girl growing up in a fun, vibrant and sometimes dysfunctional Latino household. Much like everyone, she experiences her share of illnesses, deaths, births, loves and losses. Joie faces all of these with a strength unlike most as she discovers her lesbian self. A fascinating story of a child's lesbian awakening, the power she derives from that, and her great love for her "Superhero" father and family.
Mambo Lips is the first volume and introduction to the juicier sequel, titled Salsa Hips.
