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 purchased a taco truck instead Starting from the bottom and all that.Stef loved the truck It was family to her But not any She s tired of seeing it everywhere Her parents don t even trust her to walk alone fr [...]


    2. 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 of being twelve years old A beautiful book and my only complaint is how hungry I was while reading


    3. 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 seeming pedantic or out of character Taco Queen is a great story of a kid with first generation immigrant, working class parents, including the totally realistic details of a child having to play the role of int [...]


    4. 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 dynamics and relatable friendships, however rocky they may first seem And this book has both in spades, with a healthy dose of food truck scenes that will leave you hankering for your own Tia Perla burrito I d [...]

    13. This is a short, quick MG read that any middle schooler experiencing the utter embarrassment of having parents will be able to relate with and understand So all of them Stef is starting to find many of the things her parents do humiliating to the point of not wanting them around when her friends are present any Added to that is the frustration that they don t seem to understand her This is a good add to libraries because it is a story of friendship, family, and school woes with a diverse cast I [...]

    16. T a Perla is at the center of this middle grade novel Stef s dad s taco truck, which is kind of like a member of the family I love how true this feels, that the things we wish we could shed are often the very things we come to treasure about ourselves and our lives Stef s story is realistic and memorable in terms of family, friends, school, and the desire to both fit in and find yourself, and how the latter is often the key to the first.

I find that, as a librarian, and a teacher in general, my purpose for reading has taken on a new angle I loved this book for so many reasons, but the biggest one had to do with the new purpose I ve found I ll quote the P.E teacher that read this one with her 4th grader I saw our kids in here.This book is a sweet, touching story about a girl named Stef Stef is the daughter of a man who dreams of having his own restaurant, but for now, he has a taco truck, named Tia Perla The beginning of the stor [...]
