This book is made out of empathy and calamitrons.

I love this book so much that before I even finished it, I ran out and bought another copy to gift to my kid's fourth grade class.

Sal is diabetic. And a magician. And new at a school for kids interested in the performing arts. And, oh yeah, he can create holes into parallel universes and pull through things he needs. A fact he discovers after his mother dies, and he subconsciously reaches into another universe to grab an almost-but-not-quite right replacement. Gabi is a brilliant hyper-achiever with amazing barettes who immediately needs to know what is Sal's deal. And Gabi's tiny newborn baby brother is maybe (probably) dying.

I cannot stress enough how incredibly kind this book is. For a book that opens with an act of bullying, it ends up nowhere you'd expect. It is full of good teachers, good principals, good (if often amazingly unconventional) parents, good nurses, who try hard to do their best by everyone, even when they sometimes mess it up. Even so, it is sometimes hard, and bewildering, and never the kind of simple over sweetness that rots your teeth.

But it is also very silly, with great kid-slang and giggle-worthy antics. After all, the entire plot is set in motion when Sal summons a real plucked chicken into a bully's locker as a distraction technique. (It is very effective.) There is also manic AI, in the form of a calamitron detector that is very excited about its job.

And, oh yeah, calamitrons! It turns out moving objects in between universes has consequences, and in this book those consequences are calamitrons -- little particles of trouble that accumulate wherever there is a breech. Whether the particles themselves are actually trouble or whether they just indicate unsealed holes -- which is a whole lot of potential trouble -- isn't fully explained (to my memory). Maybe in the sequel?

I am obviously buying the sequel. ( )

I chose to read this book as I feel that Fantasy is the area of children's lit where I have the least expertise, and this book was a bestseller at our school's book fair this winter. I also closely follow the Pura Belpre award as a Spanish-speaking teacher and was curious to read this book given that it received this prestigious award. The story follows two characters - Gabi - a high-achieving student-body president and Sal - an aspiring magician who has the magical ability to connect across dimension, including with his deceased mother. The book also incorporates cuban mythology and is part of "Rick Riordan Presents" - a publishing line that seeks to share stories from diverse cultures about mythology.

I see this book as a great fictional pairing for curricular studies around mythology in countries around the world. But above all, it's a great title for kids to read just to enjoy for its creative and crazy plot lines. It's also a series and is therefore a great option to recommend to students who could benefit from the structure series books provide at a more advanced upper-elementary level.

Started out so well but 70% in it just seemed to cram loads of extra characters and plot points in all at once. The ending was confusing and just not satisfying. ( )

This book is great for older children. It could be used in a science or english class because of how it discusses dimension jumping. It also touches on grief and is a very easy read for kids. ( )
