Calling all Hampden Meadows students! Please join School Librarian Mrs. Roy and Children's Librarian Miss Lisa as we collaborate in our first ever Family Book Club. Each month we'll delve into one of the 2019 Rhode Island Children's Book Award Nominations (RICBA).
Our second pick is a fiction chapter book, "Stef Soto Taco Queen" by Jennifer Torres: 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."
