Description


When a father is taken away from his family and facing deportation, his children are left to grieve and wonder about what comes next. Maricela, Manuel, and their mother face the many challenges of having their lives completely changed by the absence of their father and husband. Their day-to-day norm now includes moving to a new house, missed soccer games and birthday parties, and emptiness. Though Mango Moon shows what life is like from a child’s perspective when a parent is deported, Maricela learns that her love for her father continues on even though he's no longer part of her daily life.

Praise For…


"Author De Anda honors the real challenge that many children face when a parent is deported and reminds them that it's 'all right…to cry.' Available in both Spanish and English, this story validates a heartbreaking experience." —Kirkus Reviews
