Can you give us a sneak peek about what's coming up in Camp El Barrio?

”They laughed and even when the laughter dwindled down, Usnavi could still feel it in his mouth, in his heart. It was in the crinkle of Vanessa’s eyes. The sun was pouring onto her face through the flowers, drawing the most beautiful pattern and he wished he could paint so he could have a memory of this moment forever if he put it down on paper. Her hair looked soft, some flowing free from her braids like a fuzzy cloud, and he wondered how it’d feel under his fingers. She was still looking straight at him, right into his eyes, and he felt like they knew everything about each other. He felt like no one had ever understood him before now.

And she kissed him. And he wasn’t even surprised.”
