From Nuestra Historia, a Comprehensible Input curriculum series by Voces Digital.

Despite being displaced by Hurricane Maria as a child, Laura considers herself lucky. Her mother works long hours at a tech company, but Laura has cute little Gordi, her guinea pig and, of course, there’s Eva—the device that controls their hurricane-proof home. Eva helps
Laura with her homework, talks with her about her problems, and even has a special mode for when her mother isn’t home. Laura loves having Eva around… until she doesn’t.

This is a story about the power of—and potential problems with—technology, written in comprehensible Spanish for advanced beginners, using mostly the present tense.

Technology: Hurtful or Helpful?

In this page turner, we enter the world of a young girl whose life is intertwined with the technology around her. Despite the challenges of displacement caused by Hurricane Maria, Laura finds companionship in the form of Eva, a device her mother helped design, to bring convenience, comfort and safety to her home. Eva, a smart speaker, is designed to hurricane-proof homes in case of an emergency. However, what happens when the speaker goes rogue and doesn't want Laura to leave the house? Find out if Laura escapes, and explore the complexities of reliance on technology and what happens when it doesn't work as expected. Accessible to beginner students, this exciting book is a great first novel for students middle school aged and up!
