And she takes it all in stride Sal knows that she is someone he can work with There's only one slight problem their manipulation of time and space could put the entire universe at risk A sassy entropy sweeper a documentary about wedgies a principal who wears a Venetian bauta mask and heaping platefuls of Cuban food are just some of the delights that await in this mind blowing novel gift wrapped in love and laughter. This book is a perfect example of why I will be screaming about the Rick Riordan Presents imprint until the end of time I love it when adults remember to behave themselves They forget all the time you know Hard to blame them though They haven't been kids in so long Hernandez has created a book that is fun accessible and exciting like so many other middle grade stories but the addition of it being ownvoices for the Cuban American representation as well as showing from what I can tell from diabetic reviewers a realistic depiction of someone with type 1 diabetes makes it fresh and necessary for its modern audience There is so much here about family grief and loss and of course the idea of multiverses that is sure to work for middle readers Not to mention that every character in this book is complex but most especially our main two protagonists On the one hand you have Sal a uick witted magician in training who can literally open the doors to other universes and swap things out He his father and step mother recently moved to Miami And while he is still dealing with the what life looks like without his mother who died a few years before the relationship between him and American Stepmom was all sorts of heart warming And on the other there's Gabi a smart young feminist who's already thinking about law school She's surrounded by a whole host of paternal figures and her huge family is dealing with their own difficulties with her younger brother in NICUThroughout this story these two meet strike up a friendship and well break the universe It turns out that Sal's opening these doors isn't as clean as he originally thought There are these little things called calamitrons and a big portion of them are left behind after Sal accidentally and not for the first time brings back his mother or as he refers to her Mami Muerta I liked the idea that some of Mami's particles were still floating around in our house She wasn't all the way gone I never wanted Mami to be all the way gone There's a good amount of serious issues handled here but I think it's really tempered by both the tone of the story and also just the amount of wholesome goodness There is so much support here both in Sal and Gabi's families and the love is overflowing It's a good reminder that even though things might not always be great you always have people you can count on I love Sal and Gabi and their dynamic I love what they teach each other I love the way they have grown so much already And I am absolutely craving book two

Sal and Gabi Break the UniverseSal planted a raw chicken in Yasmany's locker even though nobody saw him do it and the bloody poultry has since mysteriously disappeared Sal prides himself on being an excellent magician but for this sleight of hand he relied on a talent no one would guess except maybe Gabi whose sharp eyes never miss a trick When Gabi learns that he's capable of conjuring things much bigger than a chicken including his dead mother. I read this book around august of 2019 last year and loved it And now I re read the book in august 2020 and loved it better than the first time I read it My rating from a 4 stars to a 5 stars I can't wait to read the seuel now
