The book cover shown may vary from what you receive.

Miguel's pet, Coquí, is always with his: while he greets his neighbors in San Juan, he buys cheese at the bakery and while he listens to his grandfather's story when he met the famous baseball player Roberto Clemente . One day Miguel finds out that he and his parents will move to the United States, which means leaving behind his beloved grandparents, his home in Puerto Rico and also Coquí. Life in New York City is overwhelming, with unfamiliar places, foods, and people. However, when he and Mom go exploring, they discover some similar places that remind them of home and Miguel realizes that there is a chance to keep a little bit of Puerto Rico with him – including his love for Coquí – wherever he goes. .
