"Ten-year-old Maricela stares at the mango-colored moon, reminiscing on the many nights during which she and her father did the samebefore his deportation. Social worker and scholar DeAnda frankly presents simple responses to the questions immigrant children might have after being separated from their parents. This Spanish version of the simultaneous English publication is sometimes awkward in its phrasing, but overall this is a much-needed text for many libraries serving families in similar situations. Though the book covers a heavy subject, Cornelisons evocative, light-filled spreads add a hint of hope, even while depicting how Maricelas dads plight affects the whole familythrough finances, living situations, school performance. Touching and timely, this is a strong choice for picture-book shelves, especially where bibliotherapy is needed." Booklist
