The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez

By Adrianna Cuevas

When animals begin disappearing and Abuela starts acting suspicious, Nestor must use his secret ability to communicate with animals to save his town from a tule vieja, a witch that transforms into animals.


From the 2021 Belpre Committee: Army kid Nestor Lopez knows the drill: new deployment, new town, don't settle in, no real friends. But his new posting has a mystery: animals are disappearing and afraid (they told him themselves), and  Abuela is acting suspicious. To rescue the town, Nestor may have to break his own rules.
