"We need books to break open our hearts, so that we might feel more deeply, so that we might be more human in these unkind times. This is a book doing work of the spirit in a time of darkness." --Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street

Efr n Nava's Am is his Superwoman--or Soperwoman, named after the delicious Mexican sopes his mother often prepares. Both Am and Ap work hard all day to provide for the family, making sure Efr n and his younger siblings Max and M a feel safe and loved.

But Efr n worries about his parents; although he's American-born, his parents are undocumented. His worst nightmare comes true one day when Am doesn't return from work and is deported across the border to Tijuana, M xico.

Now more than ever, Efr n must channel his inner Soperboy to help take care of and try to reunite his family.

A glossary of Spanish words is included in the back of the book.
