"Méndez and Alizadeh create a balance between the abstract and concrete by letting the child imagine the future but with Abuela's guidance and support. A sweet read to share with loved ones."
-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"This is a prayer to personal power, a license to dream big, and permission to keep moving forward, beyond proscribed or limiting roles...Turning a common question of childhood into a substantive quest, this imaginative set of plans will have other children charting their own course through the stars." -- School Library Journal
