How AdLit Are You?

Despite his increased responsibilities at home and the uncertainty surrounding his mother’s recent deportation, in Efrén Divided, Efrén decides to run for which office at his school?

Mama says I always liked words; that I was talking before I could walk, and reading and writing before I even got to kindergarten. For some reason, I like poems ... I like making words fit together like puzzle pieces, and coming up with the perfect rhyme.
