Taco's mom always said, "Today is the best day of your life, and tomorrow will be even better." That was hard to believe the day she died of cancer and when Taco's dad had to move up north for work, but he sure did believe it when Maggie Corrigan agreed to go with him to junior prom. Taco loves Maggie- even more than the tacos that earned him his nickname. And she loves him right back.
Except all that love? It gets Maggie pregnant. Everyone else may be freaking out, but Taco can't wait to have a real family again. He just has to figure out what it means to be a dad and how to pass calculus. And then there's getting Maggie's parents to like him. Because it would be so much easier for them to be together if he didn't have to climb the side of the Corrigans' house to see her...
HEAR ME OUT COMPLETELY, DINGUS
Firstly- I give this book a 3.75 but yeah . On goodreads I gave it a 4/5 because as you kow (maybe) you cant give half stars and 3 seemed like too little so I went with 4
They would tell him simple but harsh things and he would be like What? And smile! Like I would get so frustrated and he would just smile on and be like BEST DAY EVER!
This went on for most of the book, like 5/6th of the book but it is the ending that kinda makes it all worth it
End: Taco grew as a character. Sure it wasnt a happy ending, not really, yeah it had good parts but it wasn't a particularly good(happy) ending.
But boy was it realistic
And that, I appreciate that.
