Summary
Space-obsessed 12-year-old Paola Santiago and her two best friends, Emma and Dante, know the rule: Stay away from the river. Pao has been told to stay away for even longer than that, because her mother is constantly warning her about La Llorona, the wailing ghost woman who wanders the banks of the Gila river at night, looking for young people to drag into its murky depths. Pao organises a meet-up to test out her new telescope near the Gila, since it's the best stargazing spot. But when Emma never arrives and Pao sees a shadowy figure in the reeds, it seems like maybe her mum was right...
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Paola Santiago is excited to spend the summer before seventh grade picnicking and stargazing near the Gila River with best friends Emma and Dante. Not even a string of local disappearances or the (embarrassing) warnings from Pao's mom are enough to keep them away from the river, so when Emma fails to meet Pao and Dante at their spot, they know she must be in trouble. As Pao tries to make sense of her spooky and increasingly accurate dreams, she realizes that she and Dante must find Emma before it's too late. Armed with a crocheted bag of tools, Pao and Dante set off to save their friend and find out whether all the warnings--about La Llorona, the wailing ghost woman, and other dark creatures from Latinx folklore--could be true. Readers will love following intelligent, science-loving Pao as she suspends disbelief and discovers that the supernatural may not be so impossible. As she journeys to save friends both old and new, Pao must deal with the changes that come with middle school, including the possibility that things won't always stay the same, and come to terms with her behavior as well as her relationship with her mom. This fast-paced journey into Latinx folklore, with its clever protagonist, is sure to keep readers turning pages into the night."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Twelve-year-old Paola Santiago has always been more comfortable with science and logic than with her mother's ghost stories, especially due to her history of vivid nightmares. When her friend Emma vanishes near the banks of Silver Spring, Ariz.'s Gila River, a place forbidden to Paola because of its history of mysterious disappearances, she and friend Dante investigate, only to be sucked into a realm where monsters out of her mother's stories stalk them. The two find refuge with Los NiƱos de la Luz, an army of child warriors who guard the world's liminal spaces. To track down Emma and save the world, the two must draw upon the strength of their friendship and confront a centuries-old tragedy. With this adventure, Mejia (We Set the Dark on Fire) draws upon her Latinx heritage to conjure creatures from folklore, such as chupacabras, La Llorona, and disembodied hands, arming Paola and her allies with fantastical weapons and layering in realistic plot points: socioeconomic and immigration concerns, the tension between science and superstition. Complicated emotional development is a particular strength--Paola wrestles with issues of anger and forgiveness, mother-daughter strife, and the new "boy-girl weirdness" between her and Dante en route to becoming a reluctant hero. Ages 8--12. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Aug.)"
