Santos has lived all her 33 years in the Dreamworks Trolls Party Crew Shirt besides I will buy this Bronx—born in the Soundview section, went to Lehman College for her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business and human resources, and now runs her bookstore in the Mott Haven neighborhood. “One thing I wanted was to get away from the Bronx,” she says, but she never did.

The daughter of a Puerto Rican mother and a Black father (she didn’t know her biological father and was brought up by her mother and stepfather), Santos remembers her parents as avid readers. Her mother was a fan of women’s fiction. Her stepfather read biographies of Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, and Che Guevara and liked to listen to hip-hop.
