Booklist - 04/01/2023 Comedian Lopez teams up with award-winning Calejo (the Charlie Hernández series) in their second installment in the ChupaCarter series. Native Californian Jorge Lopez is finally feeling grounded in his new home of Boca Falls, New Mexico, and the company of best friends Ernie, Liza, and Carter (the chupacabra). Those happy feelings are quickly upended when mysterious fires and sightings of a haunted piñata materialize. Believing these events to be the works of the Blackbriar curse, which occurs every six years, the townspeople are on edge. Things only get worse when Liza’s father’s butcher shop goes up in flames. Convinced that an arsonist is afoot, Jorge and the gang decide to investigate this unnerving urban legend before their friendship falls victim to it. Lopez and Calejo have created another exciting adventure for young readers that is sprinkled with Spanish words and phrases. The humor in the story is elevated by Gutiérrez's artwork. A great reminder that you can count on your friends to help save the day. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
