Easy middle grade novel with surprising depth. Zitlally lives with family in CO and deals with life after dad is deported back to Mexico. Finds dog tied up in junkyard and is convinced he is spirit animal tied to her dad's attempt to rejoin the family. Great, age-appropriate, treatment of current issue. Really engaging characters, including dog. :)
Have loved older books by this author; now am impressed by this one for younger readers too!
