Vanessa can be found on Instagram at @BuenosDiazSD or taking pictures of pretty trees in Portland, OR, where she now resides.

This Riot Recommendation asking for your favorite co-written books is sponsored by Dear Haiti, Love Alaine by Maika and Maritza Moulite.

Dear Haiti, Love Alaine book coverWhat does a seventeen-year-old Haitian American from Miami with way too little life experience have to say about anything? Actually, a lot. Thanks to “the incident,” Alaine Beauparlant is spending the next two months in Haiti on a “spring volunteer immersion project.” It’s definitely no vacation. Under the ever-watchful eyes of Tati Estelle and her lean-in queen of a mother, she is on strict orders to finally do things right. But spending her summer hiding out in Haiti turns out to unveil more than she bargained for, including a family curse. You know, typical drama. But nothing Alaine can’t handle.
