Lupe Lopez: Rock Star Rules

When Lupe Lopez struts through the doors of Hector P. Garcia Elementary in sunglasses with two taped-up Number 2 pencils--drumsticks, of course--poking from her pocket, her confidence is off the charts. All day, Lupe drums on desks, tables, and chairs while Ms. Quintanilla reminds her of school rules. Lupe has her own rules: 1) Don't listen to anyone. 2) Make lots of noise. Rataplan! 3) Have fans, not friends. But with her new teacher less than starstruck, and fans hard to come by, Lupe wonders if having friends is such a bad idea after all. Can it be that true star power means knowing when to share the spotlight?

Mexican American filmmaker, author and youth literacy activist e.E. Charlton-Trujillo has written several award-winning books for teens and children, most notably Fat Angie, an ALA Stonewall Award Winner, and Prizefighter en Mi Casa, a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Winner. They are also a recipient of the Michael L. Printz Award for The Collectors. e.E. is the co-founder of the nonprofit Never Counted Out which empowers at-risk youth via book access and creative mentorship.
