About the author:
Jennifer Degenhardt has been teaching high school Spanish for over 20 years, the last decade of which she's spent encouraging entry level classes whose students present with speech-language challenges in English, never mind those that crop up while learning Spanish! For her there is nothing better when a reluctant or language-challenged learner finally "gets it," even to a small degree. For sure she loves the Spanish language (which she learned as an exchange student to Bolivia in high school), but the connection to people is what drives her instruction.

La chica nueva

A level 1 Spanish reader

Authored by Jennifer Degenhardt

Taruka is the new girl at the high school in town. The story takes the reader through a year of high school that Taruka is not likely to forget. She makes friends and meets a boy, Cooper. Like Cooper and many of the students at the school Taruka is very involved in sports, so she gets along with her new classmates well. But issues arise with her newfound friendship with Cooper when their differences are highlighted by the adults in their lives.
This book is intended as a reader for students learning Spanish. While the story has a plot similar to the classic story of Romeo and Juliet or Tony and Maria, the vocabulary and grammar are simple and comprehensible even for those just beginning with Spanish.
