    After tackling the business of making a big presentation at school, Stella is ready for a summer full of exciting adventures. She visits her family's home country of Mexico and sees the ocean for the first time. Then, she attends a camp at the Shedd Aquarium, where she learns that the ocean is in big trouble, and it's up to all of us to do our part to protect it and all its creatures. The theme of Stella's story continues along the lines of finding your voice and learning how to connect with people, and the challenge of saving the oceans is just the push she needs not just to make new friends but to organize them to make a difference. Stella Diaz Never Gives Up is the second entry in a delightful series that is full of heart and purpose. The author sprinkles in plenty of charming illustrations and immersive Spanish language phrases. A list of resources and ideas for charity projects for any budding activists who feel empowered by Stella's story is icing on the cake. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
