This is Our Place

About the Author Vitor Martins received his degree in journalism but works as an illustrator. He published his first YA novel Quinze Dias in June 2017 with Globo Alt in Brazil (to be published as Here the Whole Time in the U.S. in fall 2020). Product Description Three teens -- in three different decades -- navigate life, love, and family in Vitor Martinss heartfelt new novel that spans generations. Perfect for fans of Tales from the City and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. If the walls of Number 8 Sunflower Street could talk ... As Ana celebrates the new millennium, she is shocked to learn that she must leave behind her childhood home, her hometown, and -- hardest of all -- her girlfriend for a new life in Rio de Janeiro. Ten years later, Greg is sent to live with his aunt -- who runs a video rental store from her garage and owns a dog named Keanu Reeves -- as his parents work out their not-so-secret divorce. And ten years after that, Beto must put his dreams of becoming a photographer on hold as the Covid-19 pandemic arrives in Brazil, forcing him to live with his overprotective mother and overachieving sister. Set in and narrated by the same house, Number 8 Sunflower Street, and in three different decades -- 2000, 2010, and 2020 respectively -- This Is Our Place is a novel about queer teens dealing with sudden life changes, family conflict, and first loves, proving that while generations change, we will always be connected to each other. Review Praise for This Is Our Place. "It's been said by a queen that life is a mystery and everyone must stand alone, but thankfully Vitor Martins's stunner of a book will make you feel like you're home. This Is Our Place is a novel of constant delights. Ingeniously narrated by a very charming and observant house, this book beautifully captures the bittersweet joy and heartache of growing up, navigating love, and finding our place in the world." --Abdi Nazemian, author of Stonewall Honor book Like a Love Story and The Chandler Legacies "This book is like a hug, literally. In this generation-jumping novel, Martins exquisitely shows what a difference a decade can make on being young and queer--yet how our lives remain beautifully intertwined. You've never read anything else with this much quiet power before." --Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons and The 99 Boyfriends of Micah Summers Praise for Here the Whole Time: *
