Arturo loves his summers in Miami. Days are filled with playing basketball, helping at the family restaurant, and enjoying the canals and banyan trees. But when a new land developer moves into town, charming people with promises of a deluxe high rise apartment building, everything Arturo values is threatened. Can Arturo save his family restaurant and the community he loves?
Filled with Cuban heritage and a strong sense of family, The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora is a poignant coming of age tale. Arturo is a typical, but strong teen who finds his voice and a sense of purpose in the face of change. A good read for early tweens.
