    Sal and Gabi s Excellent Universe Destroying AdventureYou know how I can tell when a book is great When I can t even describe it to you without ruining the marvelous surprises I mean I could try to explain why Gabi s father is called Lightning Dad, or why Sal s teacher Dr Doctorpants dresses like a gumball machine, or even why Sal s physicist father and his not quite human assistant Bonita are building a remembranation machine in the living room But you d never believe me You d accuse me of making up cacaseca You definitely wouldn t believe me if I told you how that dead chicken got in Yasmany s locker.Was it sleight of hand Was it actual magic Was it, oh, I don t know something scarier Something that might rip apart the universe and cause a cosmic mess so big even a super custodian like Mr Milagros can t clean up You ll just have to dive into the story and find out for yourself.You re about to meet Sal Vid n He s recently moved to from Connecticut to Miami with his dad and American Stepmom because well, let s just say things got complicated when Sal ...

    I ve read a few of the other Rick Riordan Presents books but I never finished them They felt like diet Rick Riordan and like they didn t stand on their own all that well This book I think dodged that problem effortlessly It has science instead of magic and for the most part it felt like it was doing its own thing Sal and Gabi are such a delight to read I think that they are the most respectful and well mannered thirteen year olds I have ever read.While I was reading it I kept wishing that I was like them when I was that age But alas that can never be But at least this book can be a guide for younger readers I honestly think that Sal and Gabi are great role models that anyone should strive to be like.This book also cracked me up I was reading it on a long car ride with my family and I think about drove them half mad Every few of minutes I would giggle or just burst out laughing I m one of those people who when the days get shorter and colder I go into a...

    A cute middle grade read full of quirky characters and moments At times it dragged on, but the audiobook narrator told this story wonderfully and really brought it to life.

    This book is a perfect example of why I will be screaming about the Rick Riordan Presents imprint until the end of time I love it when adults remember to behave themselves They forget all the time, you know Hard to blame them, though They haven t been kids in so long. Hernandez has created a book that is fun, accessible, and exciting like so many other middle grade stories, but the addition of it being ownvoices for the Cuban American representation, as well as showing from what I can tell from diabetic reviewers a realistic depiction of someone with type 1 diabetes, makes it fresh and necessary for its modern audience There is so much here about family, grief and loss, and of course, the idea of multiverses, that is sure to work for middle readers Not to mention that every character in this book is complex but most especially our main two protagonists On the one hand you have Sal, a quick witted, magician in training who can literally open the doors to other universes and swap things out He, his father, and step mother, recently moved to Miami And while he is still dealing with the...

    THIS BOOOOOOK.I just can not even with this book It s one of my very favorite books I ve read all year Pretty much everyone I know will be getting this as a gift as soon as it comes out, kids and adults.It was so incredibly delightful I kept trying to savor it, to enjoy it and have it simmering in the back of my mind all day, but last night I hit the 3 4 mark and just stayed up late finishing it I woke up my partner, laughing so hard that the bed shook I also cried I can NOT BELIEVE how many emotions this book made me feel.Favorite quotes You learn as you grow up that everybody needs help The sooner you ask the people you love to lend you a hand, the easier life becomes That s the secret Trust in the people who love you We can all figure it out together Abracadabra, chicken plucker Sometimes, when it s too hard, when it hurts too much, only silliness can save us When that day comes, it comes Till then, rejoice in life, time and again Featured in this book How to deal with bulliesSo much amazing Cuban food that I want in my mouthOne Thousand DadsA diabetic protagonistExcellent Feminist shirts and very very cool barrettes So many dad punsHow To Meditate in a very useful waya knock your socks off Everyman playGrownups ...

    ELEVEN HUNDRED STARS I truly, truly loved this book I want to read it again right now There was honestly not a single thing I did not adore It was funny and smart and had SO MUCH HEART I super enjoyed THE ASSIMILATED CUBAN S GUIDE TO QUANTUM SANTERIA a few years ago and rec d it on a Geek Girl Con RA panel but I d never have guessed that Carlos Hernandez could make the leap to middle grade so beautifully I just I don t even know where to start with a review because I m all just flailing limbs of delight What was my favorite thing, even Gabi s multiple dads, who are basically Flourite from Steven Universe Gabi, the ultimate Hermione Granger f...
