Book: Stef Soto, Taco Queen
Author: Jennifer Torres
Estefania "Stef" Soto is itching to shake off the onion-and-cilantro embrace of Tia Perla, her family's taco truck. She wants nothing more than for her dad to get a normal job and for Tia Perla to be put out to pasture. It's no fun being known as the "Taco Queen" at school. But just when it looks like Stef is going to get exactly what she wants, and her family's livelihood is threatened, she will have to become the truck's unlikely champion.-Goodreads
Review: This was another selection for my daughter's 5th grade book club. A cute, extremely fast read, we follow Stef and her over-protective parents as her father tries to save his taco truck from pending government regulations and Stef tries to help her school raise funds for art supplies while navigating friendships and the rumor mill. I enjoyed this-I just wish it had been longer. It felt too rushed.
