Newbery Honoree Pam Muñoz Ryan weaves an entrancing tale of courage and self-discovery.

A Maximiliano Córdoba le encantan las historias, especialmente la leyenda que le cuenta Buelo sobre un mítico guardián que ayuda a los viajeros valientes de corazón puro en un viaje a la tierra del mañana.

Si Max pudiera ver el mañana, sabría si lo aceptarán en el famoso club de fútbol de Santa María y si alguna vez encontrará a su madre, quien desapareció cuando él era bebé. Quiere saber más de ella, pero su papá no quiere hablar; así que cuando Max descubre un secreto familiar que involucra una red subterránea de guardianes que ayudan a la gente a huir a la seguridad del país vecino, decide buscar las respuestas por su cuenta.

Maximiliano Córdoba loves stories, especially the legend Buelo tells him about a mythical gatekeeper who can guide brave travelers on a journey into tomorrow.

If Max could see tomorrow, he would know if he'd make Santa Maria's celebrated fútbol team and whether he'd ever meet his mother, who disappeared when he was a baby. He longs to know more about her, but Papá won't talk. So when Max uncovers a buried family secret -- involving an underground network of guardians who lead people fleeing a neighboring country to safety -- he decides to seek answers on his own.

With a treasured compass, a mysterious stone rubbing, and Buelo's legend as his only guides, he sets out on a perilous quest to discover if he is true of heart and what the future holds.

This timeless tale of struggle, hope, and the search for tomorrow has much to offer today about compassion and our shared humanity.
