Description
Now in Spanish, award-winning author Margarita Engle's lively middle grade novel in verse about a Cuban-American boy who visits his family's village in Cuba for the first time-and meets a sister he didn't know he had. Edver isn't happy about being shipped off to Cuba to visit the father he barely knows. Yet now that travel laws have changed and it's a lot easier for divided families to be reunited, his mom thinks it's time for some father-son bonding. Edver doesn't know what this summer has in store, but he's definitely not expecting to meet a sister he didn't know existed! Luza is a year older and excited to see her little brother, until she realizes how different their lives have been. Looking for anything they might have in common, they sneak onto the internet-and accidentally catch the interest of a dangerous wildlife poacher. Edver has fought plenty of villains in video games. Now, to save the Cuban jungle they love, he and Luza are going to have to find a way to conquer a real villain!
