Evelyn Del Rey is Daniela's best friend. They do everything together and even live in twin apartments across the street from each other: Daniela with her mami and hamster, and Evelyn with her mami, papi, and cat. But not after today--not after Evelyn moves away. Until then, the girls play amid the moving boxes until it's time to say goodbye, making promises to keep in touch, because they know that their friendship will always be special. The tenderness of Meg Medina's beautifully written story about friendship and change is balanced by Sonia Sánchez's colorful and vibrant depictions of the girls' urban neighborhood.

This is a beautiful and touching picture book about lifelong friends. It follows the girls as they play during their last day together as neighbors. The illustrations are bright and whimsical, and there are even a few words of Spanish throughout. A special multicultural staple for a difficult moment.
