Each tiny spark

Cartaya, Pablo (author.).

Summary

Summary: Emilia Torres has a wandering mind. It's hard for her to follow along at school, and sometimes she forgets to do what her mom or abuela asks. But she remembers what matters: a time when her family was whole and home made sense. Emilia expects that her life will get back to normal when Dad returns from deployment. Instead, it unravels. Dad shuts himself in the garage to work on an old car. Emilia peeks in on him daily, mesmerized by his welder. One day, Dad calls Emilia over. Then, he teachers her how to weld. And over time, flickers of her old dad reappear. But as Emilia finds a way to repair the relationship wth her father at home, her community ruptures, with some of her classmates - like her best friend, Gus - at the center of the conflict. Each Tiny Spark is a tender story about asking big questions and being brave enough to reckon with the answers. --
