    Sal Vidon is a magician, something he is pretty proud of Unfortunately, he s also a magician who just lost his Mami, had to move to a new school and is having a hard time fitting in Being the new kid in school can be tough and unfortunately, Sal quickly finds himself on the wrong side of a notorious bully, Yasmany During a confrontation, Sal performs his trickiest of tricks yet He makes a raw chicken appear in Yasmany s locker Such antics end up having the opposite effect he was looking for, Sal Vidon is a magician, something he is pretty proud of Unfortunately, he s also a magician who just lost his Mami, had to move to a new school and is having a hard time fitting in Being the new kid in school can be tough and unfortunately, Sal quickly finds himself on the wrong side of a notorious bully, Yasmany During a confrontation, Sal performs his trickiest of tricks yet He makes a raw chicken appear in Yasmany s locker Such antics end up having the opposite effect he was looking for, however, when the other kids begin accusing him of being a brujo Now they re all afraid of him Of him Sal Vidon, the kindest, most gentlest human in the world.While pleading his case in the Principal s office, again, Sal meets Gabi Real for the first time Gabi swoops in like a hurricane Smart, determined and funny Sal thinks, this is somebody I can work with.Over the course of the story, Sal and Gabi s relationship grows as they revealabout themselves to each other and come to rely on one another for support Sal is still struggling with the grief of losing his Mami and Gabi has an infant brother fighting for his life at a local NICU.I was so impressed with this book The writing style is fantastic, very fluid and easy to read I LOVED the characters Sal is one of the sweetest characters in any book EVER and Gabi is a true force to be reckoned with As a middle grade novel, I feel that this is an excellent introduction to the science fiction genre, as well, exploring the idea of multiple dimensions and travel between them I loved that aspect of the story and thought it was really well done There were just enough scifi elements to make it that type of story without becoming overwhelming for readers who may be newer to the genre.My favorite aspect of this story the humor I was laughing out loud from the very beginning and never let up The characters are so witty and fun Very well done by Hernandez.Another piece of this I really appreciated was the presence of such strong adult characters I feel like often in YA or Middle Grade stories, the adults are either absent or not very nice people Not the case here, the adults were really great, supportive influences in the kid s lives and that was nice to see I think it sets a good example, not just for young readers, but for the adults reading as well.This being said, even though this is a Middle Grade book, and I am far from that age group, this has been one of my most enjoyable reads of the year Keep in mind people, there is no age limit on funEveryone needs to read this Go ahead, nowThank you so much to the publisher, Disney Book Group and Rick Riordan Presents, for providing me with a copy to read and review I appreciate the opportunity and was truly impressed with this one

    I absolutely loved Sal and Gabi, I just wish they, I dunno actually broke the universe Sal is a magician , he can rip a hole in the universe and pluck something out from another universe, like a dead chicken to put in his bully s locker Gabi is a girl at school who seems to know everything about everyone, and when Sal comes into her life, she becomes intrigued that she has found someone who mystifies her We explore these characters and their lives with some very, very interesting and surp I absolutely loved Sal and Gabi, I just wish they, I dunno actually broke the universe Sal is a magician , he can rip a hole in the universe and pluck something out from another universe, like a dead chicken to put in his bully s locker Gabi is a girl at school who seems to know everything about everyone, and when Sal comes into her life, she becomes intrigued that she has found someone who mystifies her We explore these characters and their lives with some very, very interesting and surprising results.This is waycontemporary with sci fi elements, as someone pointed out to me when I read this on an Instagram live, and I wholeheartedly agree There were some very interesting developments with Sal s ability and what he s able to do with them, but beyond that, this is mainly set at middle school with the characters taking centre stage Nothing wrong with that since I absolutely loved the characters.Sal is actually hilarious and so charismatic and makes for an excellent narrator I loved his dynamic with Gabi and how they bounced off each other she can really hold her own against him They both have a lot of things they re going through and have gone through so it was beautiful to see their friendship grow throughout.But I felt the title was extremely misleading due to the fact there is no true breaking of the universe If I d known that going in, I wouldn t have gone through this book just waiting for when it was going to happen There are things Sal and Gabi does that has some consequence, and there are rules for the universes to stay balanced, but there s no big breaking of it So, maybe it happens in the sequel I wouldn t consider this a spoiler because I would have wanted to know going in to this that the universe doesn t break Maybe then it would have curbed my disappointment somewhat.But still, 4 5 because the characters kept me reading til the very end and I look forward to picking up the sequel

    A cute middle grade read full of quirky characters and moments At times it dragged on, but the audiobook narrator told this story wonderfully and really brought it to life.

    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 quick 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 NICU.Throughout 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 MuertaI 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

    I ve read a few of the other Rick Riordan Presents books but I never finished them They felt like diet Rick Riordan and like they didn t stand on their own all that well This book I think dodged that problem effortlessly It has science instead of magic and for the most part it felt like it was doing its own thing Sal and Gabi are such a delight to read I think that they are the most respectful and well mannered thirteen year olds I have ever read.While I was reading it I kept wishing that I I ve read a few of the other Rick Riordan Presents books but I never finished them They felt like diet Rick Riordan and like they didn t stand on their own all that well This book I think dodged that problem effortlessly It has science instead of magic and for the most part it felt like it was doing its own thing Sal and Gabi are such a delight to read I think that they are the most respectful and well mannered thirteen year olds I have ever read.While I was reading it I kept wishing that I waslike them when I was that age But alas that can never be But at least this book can be a guide for younger readers I honestly think that Sal and Gabi are great role models that anyone should strive to be like.This book also cracked me up I was reading it on a long car ride with my family and I think about drove them half mad Every few of minutes I would giggle or just burst out laughing I m one of those people who when the days get shorter and colder I go into a slump I get sad and kind of moody This book was the first thing to make me laugh in a while and I cant wait for it to come out so I can share it withpeople

    Sal and Gabi are delightfully charming, but are, unfortunately, trapped in a lackluster plot.
