Narrator Anthony Rey Perez's voice is full of heart and hope in this moving story of separation, love, and resilience. Efrén Nava is a 12-year-old in a close-knit family. Listeners share Efrén's pain and fear when he comes home from school to find that his mom has suddenly been deported to Mexico. He must now balance worries about his family, his school work, and caring for his younger siblings. And he's fearful that his father will be caught, too. Nonetheless, when Efrén has the opportunity to help his mom, he jumps into action. Perez's warm English and Spanish narration enlivens the characters. Even as everything is falling apart, listeners will be inspired as Efrén's community shows his family loving support. A timely and ultimately hopeful audiobook.
