The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora by Pablo Cartaya

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.

Recommended ages--10-14 years
