Charlie Hernández lives in Miami, FL and grew up listening to his abuela's Hispanic myths and legends. Now, he's just an average tween trying to make it through middle school to get to high school. Except that his parents are missing. And he's sprouted horns. Wait, the horns are gone---but now he's sprouting feathers in the middle of class? As if it couldn't get worse, Violet Rey, the school's resident tween investigative journalist notices that something's up. When a mysterious map leads Charlie and Violet on a quest to find his parents, Charlie finds out that all of those myths and legends from his abuela were very, very real. This book is fast-paced and full of action. Fans of Rick Riordan will find Charlie Hernández and the League of Shadows especially satisfying.
