Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cisneros always writes characters full of foibles and humor and human warmth, and he really knows his basketball.” -- Carlos Hernandez, Pura Belpré-winning author of Sal and Gabi Break the Universe

"With characters so true to life that they practically jump off the page, Falling Short is the perfect balance of humor and heart. If books were basketball, author Ernesto Cisneros just made a slam dunk." -- Sarah Scheerger, author of Operation Frog Effect

"A beautiful Latinx novel about friendship, determination, and the gift of self-acceptance. Cisneros knocks down a game winner with Falling Short." -- Newbery Medalist Matt de la Peña

"Cisneros’ touching sophomore novel is an ideal pick for sports fans and will reel in reluctant readers." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"At every turn, Isaac and Marco support each other in this affirming story of basketball, middle school, friendship, and family, and choosing kindness and determination over easy cowardice or cruelty." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

About the Author

Ernesto Cisneros was born and raised in Santa Ana, California, where he still teaches. Efrén Divided is his first book. He holds an English degree from the University of California, Irvine; a teaching credential from California State University, Long Beach; as well as a master of fine arts in creative writing from National University. As an author, he believes in providing today’s youth with an honest depiction of characters with whom they can identify. The real world is filled with amazing people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. His work strives to ref lect that. You can visit him online at www.ernestocisneros.com.


Always the perfect gift
