“A sprawling fantasy teeming with deep and meaningful magic.

No character is one-dimensional, and every character must learn from failure and introspection to become who they were meant to be.”Kelly, Mysterious Galaxy Books
Sal and Gabi Break the Universe
A Sal and Gabi Novel: Book #1
“I listened to the incomparable audiobook of this delightful novel, and can't recommend it enough, especially for families who like to enjoy listening to books with their kids! This middle grade novel is funny, sharp, and wise, with incidental diversity of so many kinds without feeling like you're checking diversity points off a list. Anthony Rey Perez's recording is A perfect, his snarky inflection, effortless voicing of a variety of characters, and ability to slide easily between English and Spanish with native ease make him a perfect choice for this heavily Latinx and Cubano book. Sweet and funny interactions between middle schoolers whose intelligence more often than not gets them into more trouble than it's worth, a hefty dose of magic, and a very heart-wrenching grapple with grief and loss, both potential and real, make this a truly special book.”Gretchen, A Room Of One's Own Bookstore
