Efrén Divided (Large Print / Library Binding)

Staff Pick Badge
Efrén Divided By Ernesto Cisneros Cover Image

Staff Reviews

A powerful story about a family torn apart by deportation and a young boy forced to grow up too quickly. Efrén’s struggles, while all-too common, are still those that the average person does not have to worry about, but Cisneros creates such realistic characters that the reader can’t help but empathize.

With an ending that doesn’t shy away from hard truths but remains ultimately hopeful, Efrén Divided is essential reading.

“This book is, unfortunately, very relevant to our current political climate and to too many young readers. That’s what makes it so important. When Efrén’s mother is suddenly deported, he has to figure out how to balance his relationships at school with his new responsibilities at home. As if middle school wasn’t hard enough! Reading about those most affected by the immigration crisis will make anyone want to take action to change this story to fiction.”
— Riley Jay Davis, Next Chapter Booksellers, St. Paul, MN
