OverDrive audiobook - children's diverse middlegrade fiction, humor/sci-fi

very funny parallel-universe hopping adventure, with plenty of super clever bathroom humor (thanks to a toilet with Artificial Intelligence) and TONS of thoughtful inclusivity that will appeal to people and sentient beings of all colors, stripes, genders, and backgrounds. I also love that the kids also make mistakes that they need to then apologize for and make up for.

This story takes place very shortly after the action of the first book; you'll definitely want to read [b:Sal and Gabi Break the Universe|36595887|Sal and Gabi Break the Universe (Sal and Gabi, #1)|Carlos Hernandez|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1536087897l/36595887._SY75_.jpg|58346652] first to get a better introduction to all of the characters. Sal and Gabi are Cuban-American and go to a very DIVERSE arts school; Sal has diabetes and lives with his widowed dad; Gabi has many "dads." ( )

Book two starts up as Sal and Gabi try to figure out how to close up the holes in the universe that caused havoc in the first book ( )

I'm really enjoying the Sal and Gabi books as an outlier in the Rick Riordan Presents world—while still pretty fantastical, they're more about sci-fi concepts than folklore, and they're a lot of fun! Of course, they're also really wacky, a bit surreal, and maybe a little hard to follow for the intended age group. ( )

Hard to believe it's only been about three weeks...but Sal and Gabi are off on a new mission. Sal's Papi and Gabi's Dad: The Final Frontier believe they can use the remembranation machine to fix all the holes in the universe - but a Gabi from another universe slips through to warn them that some holes must stay open (the membrane must remain permeable, like a cell). "FixGabi" wants to go too far in the other direction, however, and get rid of the membrane completely.

Meanwhile, at Culeco, parent-teacher conference night approaches, along with the "Rompenoche" performance - this year, a version of Alice in Wonderland. Unfortunately, the performance is terrible (the costumes, however, are brilliant). Can Sal and Gabi save the show and the universe? (Yes, yes they can. With plenty of humor and slang and slight-of-hand along the way. Oh, and they help their friend Yasmany too. And there's a class-9 AI toilet named Voragine. Of course.)

Quotes

Hope is the thing you lose right before you lose everything else. (54)

[Adam] told jokes mostly to make himself laugh. That was a sign of someone who gives feero zucks about what other people think. And that made him someone I could work with. (92)

I think part of me was secretly hoping that, if I ran fast enough, I could even outrun my maturity, which was spoiling more and more of my fun every day. (110)

"But how are we supposed to function in a universe of contradictions?!"
"We learn everything we can. We take action. But we pay attention to the consequences of our actions. That leads to better actions in the future." (151)

I was starting to think that every solution I came up with created a worse problem than the previous problem. (163)

"What if I could give you irrefutable proof right now that I'm right? Would you change your mind? Just like that, this very second?"
"Yes," said Papi, looking surprised that I would even have to ask. "I'm a scientist. When better proof comes along, I change my beliefs to fit the best evidence. Anything less would be illogical and unethical." (292)

"Like the actors at Renaissance faires...They're always in character, but they make up their lines to fit the situation." (interactive site-specific theater, 320)

"It's evidence of a sophisticated mind, not being afraid of weird things." (Gabi to Sal, 340)

Adults out there, listen up: Kids hear better than you do. If you can hear it, so can we, and if you can't hear it, we probably can anyway. (364)

"The most good, for the most people, for as long as you have the spoons." (Gabi to Sal, 369)

"What you're saying that is, in life, sometimes the wrong person wins."
"Sometimes it feels like the wrong person is always winning." (Gabi and Sal, 372) ( )

Sal and Gabi Fix the Universe, while an entertaining sequel, also has a lot to recommend in its own right as a story.

You'll recall that Sal Vidón, one of the titular characters, is able to pull objects through from other parallel worlds. In this follow-up adventure, he and Gabi Reál must contend with another version of Gabi from another world in the multiverse. She's gone from world to world, "saving" the Sal in each of these worlds from his father, Gustavo Vidón - who in every world is a calamity physicist trying to close-up all the holes that Sal has made between worlds.

The series is particularly enjoyable for its cast of rich characters and details: of how Gabi's family encompasses many people all recognized as her "dads." Sometimes this honor crosses gender, and even crosses species boundary; a large friendly cat, sort of in shared custody between the Reál family in two different worlds, has the honorific, "Meow-dad." One of the story's most touching scenes concerns the building of a house in the Reál family's tiny-home village for the newest addition among her "daddies."

Another enjoyable touch concerns the unique personalities of various A.I. machines.

I received a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley and, while I understand that a pre-publication copy might need further editing, I was surprised at how often the beginnings of sentences, and the first letter of characters' names, were rendered in lowercase. One or two instances wouldn't have been worth commenting, but this went on throughout the book - and I had to wonder how and why the manuscript turned out this way.

Altogether, I think this book will be an enjoyable addition to young readers' collections in libraries.
