Children’s author Ernesto Cisneros debut is a grand slam homerun. Efrén Divided is easily one of the best MG novels of the year. Solid plot, solid pacing, solid from first word to last. You’d think Cisneros is telling a real story about real people and, in a way, he is. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be begging for more. Do yourself a favor and read it, review it, share it, and spread the word! Click here to buy from Barnes & Noble and here for Amazon.
