Today is Sal & Gabi Break the Universe Day! We’re such fans of this book already and we can’t wait to hear what all of you think of it. In case you need any extra enticement to check out this duo’s wild ride through the multiverse, we’d like to introduce them to you right here!
Sal, a natural showman, is destined to make an unforgettable entrance as the new kid at Culeco Academy of the Arts. As someone who has had to cope with challenges like type 1 diabetes and the loss of his mother, he knows the importance of bringing a smile to people’s faces. With a seemingly endless number of pockets to hold his magic supplies, he is well-equipped to wow his audience with impossible illusions. Including pulling objects—and people—straight out of another universe.
As class president and editor-in-chief of the school paper, Gabi is always seeking the truth and advocating for fairness. Backed by her loving mother and eccentric collection of fathers, Gabi believes that everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt and the chance to succeed. So, when her friend Yasmany is stymied by a boy who can pull dead chickens out of thin air, Gabi is determined to get the bottom of things by any means necessary.
