The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora | Sticky Note Reviews

When The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora came off of hold, I was glad to have a number of books to read on my trip up to Albuquerque. But I didn’t feel like reading. At all.

So it wasn’t until this week when I went to work (read: drove on the highway for an hour) that I actually picked up a book. The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora is a middle grade novels about a Cuban-American kid, living in Miami, who’s trying to save his family’s restaurant.  It’s both funny and sad, as well as fabulous. Here’s my full Sticky Note Review.

#bookaday The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora by Pablo Cartaya. #SNRtbs I loved Arturo Zamora. Seriously. It's a great middle grade novel about family, first loves, and fighting for community. It's about community fighting together against gentrification. It's about poetry, living through loss, and the legacies left behind. I love the way Cartaya shows intergenerational relationships – Arturo and his parents, Arturo's perception of his hysterical aunt, Arturo and his abuelos. Also, the audiobook is read by Cartaya, and he does an amazing job bringing the characters to life. Definitely a t(b)s recommended read! . #latinxpublishing #bookreview #stickynotereview #stickynotereviews #blackbookblogger #blackblogger #weneeddiversebooks #bookstagram #instaread #instareads #bookreviews #reading #middlegrade #middlegradebooks #latinxcharacters #booknerd #bibliophile #read #reader #review #literature
