    ARC from litreviewcrew I loved the concept of a middle school student who can talk to animals choosing to save his new home from a tule vieja witch and the mixture of Spanish and English dialogue It was a very fun adventure story There were some points where I had a hard time following the story and a couple moments that the adults were so unbelievable it really took me out of the action, but overall, I really enjoyed this one

    Sixth grade Nestor Lopez has moved 6 times and has had 10 first days of school He just wants to live in one place forthan a few months He ends up in New Haven, Texas with his mom to live with his grandmother Before, he had to live on military bases so he s not so sure how this will go He knows that with having his grandmother here, he will not be able to easily get out of chores and things around the house No bueno.Whats so special about Nestor is that he can talk to animals He does Sixth grade Nestor Lopez has moved 6 times and has had 10 first days of school He just wants to live in one place forthan a few months He ends up in New Haven, Texas with his mom to live with his grandmother Before, he had to live on military bases so he s not so sure how this will go He knows that with having his grandmother here, he will not be able to easily get out of chores and things around the house No bueno.Whats so special about Nestor is that he can talk to animals He does not want anyone to find out though family included Well, word around New Haven is that animals have gone missing Two kids in his class were talking about how their dog and goats disappeared Then he heardandWhat he least expects is that his grandmother has anything to do with it But rumors say that she s been in the woods The woods that no one wants to walk through because all of the supposed terrors that live in there As Nestor tries to take this in, his friends try to figure this out with him Next thing they know a tule vieja may be the suspect A tule vieja is a witch and she can soak in the powers of animals that she bites during the solar eclipse that happens twice a year Bad news bears for New Haven the next eclipse is supposed to happen in a few days right where they live.What s different about this book is the dynamic of the character and the twist of magical realism I think the author did an amazing job with crafting the voice of Nestor Lopez I felt like I was in the book listening to that crazy crow and going on this upturned quest to help save the missing animals The relationship between Nestor and his father was very special and I loved that This is a book that I will highly recommend to my students It reminded me a little bit of Twist by Sarah Cannon
