Realistic fiction about a middle schooler, Efrén, whose mother is deported to Mexico. A slice of life of caring for siblings, navigating school, and deciding whether to start trying to make a bigger difference for his school, community, and country. I'd recommend to educators and kids asking for realistic, emotionally complex stories.
