Gr 5–7—Efrén sometimes wishes that he didn't have to share a bed with his younger twin siblings, but he knows that
they are all loved and well cared for. When his mom is suddenly deported to Mexico, Efrén takes on the heavy mantle of caregiver as his father works round the clock to support them. But things inevitably start to slip, and Efrén

This is a Pura Belpre winner chapter book. It centers around a boy, Efren, and how he deals with the deportation of his mother. Efren struggles with taking on the care of his two siblings, keeping up with school work, and his friendships. Intense scenes such as Efren sneaking money to his mother in Tijuana, where he sees violent crime and children workers. Strong message of taking pride in your culture and appreciation for family sacrifices made in immigration. Great messaging about student voice through a school president campaign. I could see this book being used as a whole class reading book for 4-5th graders. Some intense or possibly foreign(or very close to home) scenes would be great to discuss and process as a class.… (mere)

Will the support and friendship of these best friends help them adjust to middle school and deal with problems at home?

This an ideal pick for sports fans and reluctant readers. Story highlights the importance of friendship and family.
