Description-

  • Rick Riordan Presents a brilliant sci-fi romp with Cuban influence that poses this question: What would you do if you had the power to reach through time and space and retrieve anything you want, including your mother, who is no longer living (in this universe, anyway)?
    In order to heal after his mother's death, Sal learned how to meditate. But no one expected him to be able to take it further and "relax" things into existence. Turns out he can reach into time and space to retrieve things from other universes—even his mom! He has promised his dad and stepmom that he won't bring back his mother anymore (it causes a lot of marital tension), but sometimes he can't help himself. Why can't they all just get along?
    Sal doesn't talk about his ability with anyone. At Culeco, his performing arts middle school, he just chalks it up to being a magician. But when he meets Gabi, the student council president and editor of the school paper, he realizes she is someone he can work with. She could use his help, too, because she has a newborn brother on life support. But just because Sal and Gabi can do some interesting things to improve lives, does that mean that they should? When things get out of hand, it's going to require some truly out-of-the-box thinking to set things right.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Anthony Rey Perez dives in and out of English and Spanish, giving this audiobook the ambiance of Cuban-American culture. He skillfully interprets the mix of realistic and fantastic events and maintains the fast pace of this compelling listen. He is outstanding at portraying hero Salvador Vidon, a magician with a secret. Since his mother died, Sal has created tears in the universe through which he brings in objects from other worlds and versions of his Mami. He finds friendship and partnership with sensitive Gabi Real, whom Perez depicts expertly, along with her large, strange family. Perez fully captures these two heroes, their growing regard for each other, and their creative collaborations. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
