Staff Reviews

After his Amá is deported back to Mexico, Erfrén is determined to help his family survive and reunite. He cares for his twin siblings, tries to not fall behind in school, and keeps the hope alive that their mother will come home. It’s heartbreaking and presents real issues that are all too common.

“This book is, unfortunately, very relevant to our current political climate and to too many young readers. That’s what makes it so important. When Efrén’s mother is suddenly deported, he has to figure out how to balance his relationships at school with his new responsibilities at home. As if middle school wasn’t hard enough! Reading about those most affected by the immigration crisis will make anyone want to take action to change this story to fiction.”
