"Don’t sweat the small stuff. My mother used to say that, I guess. In Spanish, the equivalent to ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’ is ‘No te ahogues en un vaso de agua’, literally, ‘don’t drown yourself in a cup of water.” – Daisy Hernández
Real Life, the book that inspired this series, is now available from Flatiron Books in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook formats. To learn more about the book or get a copy, you can visit Sharon’s website here.
