Stef Soto, Taco Queen

Finished Stef Soto, Taco Queen by Jennifer Torres. 

Stef Soto’s dad owns and operates a taco truck. When she was little, it made her fairly popular. Now, though, the real popular kids make fun of her. It’s not like she’s ashamed of it, exactly, but she hates when he picks her up from school in it…which he usually does. 

I really enjoyed this charming novel. It’s pretty fluffy but also has a lot of depth to it. The immigrant experience runs through the story, as well as the typical teen girl experience of finding parents embarrassing. (Especially Stef’s parents, who redefine overprotective.)

It’s a debut novel and I am excited to see what Jennifer Torres does next.
