From Newbery Medalist and New York Times best-selling author Meg Medina comes the bittersweet story of two girls who will always be each other’s número uno, even though one is moving away.


A big truck with its mouth wide open is parked at the curb, ready to gobble up Evelyn’s mirror with the stickers around the edge . . . and the sofa that we bounce on to get to the moon.


Evelyn Del Rey is Daniela’s best friend. They do everything together and even live in twin apartments across the street from each other: Daniela with her mami and hamster, and Evelyn with her mami, papi, and cat. But not after today—not after Evelyn moves away. Until then, the girls play amid the moving boxes until it’s time to say goodbye, making promises to keep in touch, because they know that their friendship will always be special. The tenderness of Meg Medina’s beautifully written story about friendship and change is balanced by Sonia Sánchez’s colorful and vibrant depictions of the girls’ urban neighborhood.

Evelyn Del Rey es la mejor amiga de Daniela. Hacen todo juntas e incluso viven una al frente de la otra en la misma calle en apartamentos que son casi iguales: Daniela con su mami y su hámster, y Evelyn con su mami, su papi y su gato. Pero no después de hoy—no después de que Evelyn se mudé de su casa. Mientras tanto, las niñas juegan entre las cajas de mudanza hasta la hora de despedirse, y se prometen mantenerse en contacto, pues saben que su amistad siempre será especial. Esta es una tierna historia sobre la amistad y los cambios en la vida, bellamente escrita por Meg Medina, realzada con las ilustraciones coloridas y vibrantes de Sonia Sánchez que describen el vecindario urbano de las niñas.
