In this magical middle-grade debut novel from Adrianna Cuevas, The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez, a Cuban American boy must use his secret ability to communicate with animals to save the inhabitants of his town when they are threatened by a tule vieja, a witch that transforms into animals.

All Nestor Lopez wants is to live in one place for more than a few months and have dinner with his dad.

And the next eclipse is just around the corner.

Now it''s up to Nestor''s extraordinary ability and his new friends to catch the tule vieja-and save a place he might just call home.
