EVELYN DEL REY IS MOVING AWAY, by Meg Medina and Sonia Sanchez (Illustrator)


A touching friendship tale from Newbery Medalist Meg Medina, accompanied by Sonia Sanchez’s emotionful illustrations, Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away follows two best friends on the day before one of them moves away. You’ll get a glimpse into their special friendship that’s relatable and heartfelt. A perfect story to read at any age and appropriate for many of life’s bittersweet moments. This beautiful story may even inspire you to call an old friend or even send them a copy for nostalgia.

From Newbery Medalist Meg Medina comes the bittersweet story of two girls who will always be each other’s número uno, even though one is moving away.

A big truck with its mouth wide open is parked at the curb, ready to gobble up Evelyn’s mirror with the stickers around the edge . . . and the sofa that we bounce on to get to the moon.

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.
