I seriously need a taco right now.
Books that constantly mention food can be so cruel on one’s stomach. Lucky Stef Soto, her father drives around in a full-food-equipped taco truck.
It started with a dream. Her father wanted to open his own restaurant, but her family couldn’t afford it, so they pur...

I loved this book and its slice of life portrayal of a young girl trying to sprout her wings under the overly-watchful eyes of her immigrant parents. The parents' characters are wonderful, but it is Stef and her classmates that sing on the page. No false steps here, just gloriously messy reality...

I received a free ARC of this 2017 middle grade book. What a great read! Torres's skillful use of two languages carries Stef Soto through middle school stresses with friends and parents. I loved the way descriptions of the use of Spanish words are seamlessly woven into the text without ever seemi...

STEF SOTO, TACO QUEEN is a heart-warming middle-grade debut. The main character, Estefania "Stef" Soto, won me over with her sincerity and strength of spirit, okay and her love for art. (Not to mention her art teacher is also pretty great.) I'm a sucker for books centered around authentic family...

Stef also can't stand ho...

What a fabulous story. Torres has created such a lovable and strong character in Stef, who is *such* a middle-grade heroine, simultaneously embarrassed by and driven to support and protect her parents. Such wonderful details of her culture, too!

I loved this book! Stef is tired of her parents treating her like a child, and she's embarrassed when her father picks up from school in Tia Perla, the family's taco food truck. She especially wants them to let her go to a pop concert with her best friend, unchaperoned.
But things don't...

Sweet sweet book about Stef Soto and the challenges she faces in school due to the family business - the Taco Truck. The middle school relationships aren't surprising - the friend who is not longer a friend - the mean girl, but they'll be comforting to young readers in their authenticity. I loved...
