I came across this one on Twitter and had no idea what to expect. I just thought it sounded interesting because it is about a girl who loves to make Cuban food, and I enjoy eating Cuban food.
In Miami, Lila Reyes has been having a rough time. First her beloved Abuela passes away, then her stupid boyfriend dumps her right before the prom. Knowing that she’s struggling, her parents decide to send Lila to a cousin in a small town in England. Once there, she finds a group of people she never knew she needed and discovers more about herself. Lots of good characters here as well and I really wish it was more than just one book because it was so engrossing. It also makes me want to learn how to make Pan Cubano, but that’s a different issue.
Ok friends. Your mission – should you choose to accept – is to read any/all of these and maybe fall in love a little. (It’s ok if it’s just with the Pan Cubano.)
I dare you.
