A by-the-numbers feel good friendship and family story that's both brief and sweet. It's also likely to make you hungry. Enjoy it under the canopy of your local food truck.

Stef's ex-best friend gave her the nickname "Taco Queen," and that's not meant as a compliment. Her parents own a food truck and she can't think of anything more embarrassing than being picked up from school in "Tía Perla." On top of that, her parents are so over-protective that she never gets to do anything. She wishes she could just be like other kids: go see pop star Viviana Vega when she comes to town, plan and go to the school dance fundraiser to help save the school art program. But when her family’s livelihood is threatened by new requirements for the food trucks in town, she realizes what truly is important to her. Great #ownvoices book about the experiences of a Mexican American girl with school, friendship, family and civic engagement.

7th grader, Step Soto, wants to fit in, but with a father who has a taco truck and she’s got to help him, its hard. As an adult what I liked about this book for upper elementary aged readers, is that Step has to learn to cope with disappointment. Her parents are strict. She has to miss some of the cool activities because her folks don’t give her much freedom. But in the end she finds out how important family is.
