Winner of the Pura Belpré Award!

"We need books to break open our hearts, so that we might feel more deeply, so that we might be more human in these unkind times. This is a book doing work of the spirit in a time of darkness." ??Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street

Efrén Nava's Amá is his Superwoman??or Soperwoman, named after the delicious Mexican sopes his mother often prepares. Both Amá and Apá work hard all day to provide for the family, making sure Efrén and his younger siblings Max and Mía feel safe and loved.

But Efrén worries about his parents; although he's American-born, his parents are undocumented. His worst nightmare comes true one day when Amá doesn't return from work and is deported across the border to Tijuana, México.

Now more than ever, Efrén must channel his inner Soperboy to help take care of and try to reunite his family.

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
must find a way to get Amá back. This timely debut about family, resilience, and injustice will resonate with readers
of all ages.

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. ( )

Heartbreaking, timely, compelling. Recommended for all kids.

I appreciated this book but didn’t love it. The dialogue struck me as a little corny at times, especially David’s. Overall, this felt like a book written to deliver a message, but an important and good one. The story had no villains except our broken immigration system.

I can’t decide if the ending was perfect or terrible. It will definitely spark discussion and hopefully research. Tragically realistic but the author attempts to instill hope in young readers. ( )

(children's middlegrade audio fiction - 4.5 hrs, skillfully performed by Anthony Ray Pérez)

Efrén is getting along in school just fine (excellent grades, though he's careful not to raise his hand too much so he doesn't seem like a nerd; his goofy best friend David is running for ASB president) when one day his undocumented mom doesn't come home -- she has been picked up by ICE and promptly deported to México. Suddenly he needs to care for his twin little siblings while his dad works overtime to try to pay for a coyote to bring his mom home again, he is getting into all kinds of trouble at school, and even things with his best friend are strained.

I was bawling through the whole middle/end of the book; keep the tissues handy 😭. ( )

This book is good for middle school age ranges, it is a chapter book but it is simpler in content. This story shows the struggles of a young seventh grade boy as he deals with his mother being deported and him and his father trying to keep the family afloat. It gives insight into the lives of people who have been affected similarly. This book would be used in classrooms to illustrate the struggles of different cultures, and give some understanding to students who may have similar experiences. ( )
