Q is a curious letter - worth ten points in Scrabble, rarely used, and usually followed by a U. Quite appropriately though, it is a recurring feature in the life of Quetzal Quinn. From quagmires to qualifications and from quizzes to quotations, the letter Q always seems to be there in Quetzal's life. Ubiquitous Q is the heart-warming, life-affirming, and often humorous story of Quetzal, known simply as Q to her friends, from her childhood as a member of the Pugh family (when she was known as Q Pugh) to turning fifty and becoming a quinquagenarian. With a loving family and good friends, whose fate and fortune often seem to be determined by their own names, Q has lived a varied and largely happy life. Ubiquitous Q is more than the story of one person though; it is the story of a family and community and their triumphs and tragedies. A story we can relate to and a story to warm our hearts.
