"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."--Publisher's website.

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.
