Review

Across the Bay showcases the hardship of children growing up without a father. Carlitos lives with his mother and his abuela but finding unhappiness in his family he searches across the bay for his father. He ends up realizing that his father’s memory never left him and the happiness he searched for is available in his own home. The powerful theme of appreciating the family you have will touch many youths that have different families of their own. Helping to contribute with the theme, Carlitos is a highly relatable character feeling unrest in seeing other families with fathers. Aponte not only writes a powerful, and often unspoken story, but his colorful illustrations attract the eye and give awareness to a Puerto Rican culture. Highly Recommended Sarah Trigg, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University.
