Enhance your purchase
Efrén Divided is a not-to-be-missed debut middle grade novel for readers who love Front Desk or Merci Suárez Changes Gears--or for anyone working toward a more loving world--about family, friendship, and tearing down the walls being built between us.
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.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Finally, the ending felt like it should have been the midpoint, and there are still two or three chapters more that disappeared.
The problem, however, is only the structure. The narration of Efren's life as a student and his friendship with David is excellent. And the portraying reality around Mexican-American families made the book worth recommending.
I see so many of my students and their families in this story. I have helped them find lawyers, housing, and furniture. I have attended their quinceañeras, officiated their weddings, and visited maternity wards.
Ernesto Cisneros has written an accurate and outstanding portrayal of the community that I am privileged to work alongside. I hope I have watered some seeds throughout my career.
Thank you for this book. I hope Mr Cisneros’s children encourage him to write a sequel.
