Stef Soto, Taco Queen Cover

Have you seen it yet?

Take a peek:


Really fun, right? I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to introduce Stef. Here’s a little more about the book:

Seventh grader 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. In this fun and multicultural middle grade novel, Stef will discover what matters the most, and ultimately embrace an identity that even includes old Tia Perla.

STEF SOTO, TACO QUEEN will be released by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers in January 2017 (but you can preorder now!)

A few weeks ago, my terrific friends at the Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library hosted a cover reveal on the library’s website. Check it out for some fun facts about the book.

(And I was super-delighted to read this really nice review from the Pretty Page Turner blog.)

It’s getting exciting, you guys.
