    Hi there! I’m back after a very long time. I found this website when I was randomly surfing the web, and I remembered I had written my username and password somewhere… so here I am! Since I don’t know a lot of you that well, I’m just going to say a few questions, you can reply if you want to. 1) What is your favorite color? 2) What is your favorite animal? 3) If you know about Pokemon, what is your favorite Pokemon? 4) What is your favorite book and movie? 5) If you have read Harry Potter, what house are you in? Here are my answers: 1) Black 2) Tigers or red pandas I guess? 3) Cyndaquil or Pichu 4) Favorite book is “See you in the Cosmos” by Jack Cheng and favorite movie… well I guess The Mandalorian because I’m a star wars fan as well? Maybe some of the new movies like Encanto, Turning Red, I don’t know… 5) The quiz told me I’m in Ravenclaw. Not sure if thats accurate… anyway, thank you for reading this post and I’d appreciate if you reply and tell me your answers! ^_^

    loketoke's book review was featured in Efren Divided.
    I honestly only picked this book because I thought the cover was interesting. However, this book was so much more than I thought it would be. (I also learned a lot of Spanish from this book, haha). Efren is a normal seventh grader, straight As and a perfect attendance record. He has everything anyone could wish for— caring parents, annoying yet cute siblings, and a best friend, David (sometimes referred to as “El Periquito Blanco” due to the colorful clothes he wears). Well, he might be poor, but his Ama (mom) makes it feel like the house is bigger than it seems with her joyful attitude, her strong hands, and her care for the family. Until one day. Efren was helping David with his campaign posters (David had decided to run for president). He arrived home late but when he entered his house, something was wrong. The twins (Max and Mia, his siblings) were missing. At first he assumed that Ama had brought them back to the playground to play, so he didn’t ponder it for too long. After reading for over an hour, though, he started to get worried. Thats when he realized Ama was missing, after discovering a note that said his neighbor had the twins. His Ama had been DEPORTED, meaning she was now across the border in Mexico taken by the ICE because she wasn’t a “true citizen” in the United States. Life got harder for Efren after that. Taking care of the twins HIMSELF, with his father working overtime to earn money, having to make food and earn money, and still help his friend manage his campaign. Lots of things happen in between here and I won’t spoil it for you… however this is an amazing and heartwarming book and my heart really ached when Efren couldn’t tell the truth about Ama getting deported to Max and Mia, when David told Efren he didn’t want to be friends with him anymore, sympathized when so many loved ones in Efren’s life was deported… I think you’ll have a fun time reading this book. :)

    Hey everyone! I haven’t been on lately, and that’s because I’ve just been SO busy with other stuff! I’ve recently went to a camp where we kayaked, hiked, camped, and did so much more! So I have some questions for you guys, you can comment below to answer. 1. Have you ever camped before? If you have, where? If you haven’t, are you planning too? 2. What is your favorite part of camping? 3. Have you ever cooked in the wild before? 4. Have you ever jumped into the ocean? Thanks guys!

    It’s great that they are keeping a track of where the elephants are — imagine if they walked into a city!
