Matt de la Peña is the New York Times bestselling, Newbery Medal winning author of six young adult novels (including Mexican WhiteBoy, We Were Here and The Living) and four picture books (including Last Stop on Market Street and Love). Last Stop on Market Street is currently being adapted for the stage as a hip hop musical.
