Adrianna Cuevas is the author of The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez (out now!) and Cuba in My Pocket (fall 2021).
“A marvelous, magical mystery that deftly blends family, friends, and folklore. Cuevas has crafted a stunning debut centered around one of the most compelling and lovable new protagonists in MG fantasy: Nestor Lopez, the big-hearted boy who can talk to animals. His bittersweet yet exciting adventures had me on the edge of my seat for hours on end, laughing and crying and biting my nails in anxiety. I’m so excited for the legions of kids who get to unpack this stunning debut!”
– David Bowles, author of Texas Bluebonnet Award List, Pura Belpre Honor Book, and Walter Dean Myers Honor Book They Call Me Guero and Pura Belpre Honor Book The Smoking Mirror
“Mystery, adventure, humor, friendship, and… talking animals- The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez has it all! Readers will love this funny, fast-paced, heartwarming story.”
