  1. Hey! What do you mean with the languages/nationalities after the titles? As far as I know, M-E Gerard is not Portuguese…

    1. She’s not, but the MC of her book is – those are the nationalities of the characters

    1. No worries! I struggled a lot with clear phrasing there, honestly, and it’s still a little misleading because it implies US to most people but that character is Portuguese-Canadian.
