    An adorable story of wonder and self-discovery that follows a Cuban-American girl from Miami to England. Lila Reyes thought she had her life mapped out, but after graduating high school, her plans crumbled, and she finds herself begrudgingly traveling to England to spend the summer...

    A Cuban Girl?s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow was one of Reese Witherspoon?s YA book club picks, and I can see a lot of what makes it appealing ? romance, family, grief and recovery, friendship, and cultural diversity and celebration. The girl of the title is Lila Reyes, a 17-year-...

    I am not the target audience for this book so please take my review with a grain of salt. I am sure many people love this book but, unsurprisingly, this book was not for me. I found it really tedious. The romance was lackluster and underdeveloped but I also found the main character bor...

    THIS BOOK. Okay, this book was everything my Cuban heart needed and more. I was so worried at certain moments that it would head down a cliche path, but then it surprised me! This was a stellar debut and I'm so happy that the author made it so authentically Cuban. I saw myself...

    I really wanted to love this one but unfortunately I really struggled with this from beginning to end. I love the culture and I loved getting to know Lila's family but I struggled with Lila herself. I found her hard to empathize with, which feels ridiculous to say when so many...

    WAIT. a YA contemporary with a CUBAN main character?? living in MIAMI?? the representation I've never seen is right here in this book. this lovely little book follows Lila, as she deals with some tragic events in her life: her lifelong best friend abandons her to follow her own...

    This was super cute! The opening chapters felt a little info-dumpy with backstory, but once the action moved to the UK I was HOOKED. I loved watching Lila adapt from sunny Miami to the UK. (I have also gone to London in the summer and been like... what? I need sweaters?) I loved he...

    wow, this story crept its way into my heart so stealthily that before i knew it, i looked up at the clock to find that hours had passed and i had finished the entire thing in pretty much one sitting. a lovable and deeply relatable cast of characters where even the side characters felt ...

    3.5 stars. This was a bit of a weird reading expereince for me if I'm being honest. I thought this was very well written and I especially appreciated the way that the author depicted grief and depression, and I also thought that the romance at the center of this felt well flushed ...

    2.5 stars I'm so sad that I didn't enjoy this! I had such high expectations, especially as this sounded exactly like my cup of tea (no pun intended). I mean, a YA travel novel that takes place in England? Count me in! Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. I strug...

    4/5 stars. I adored this book so much. It was a bit slow for me at first, Lila's story of desperately missing her home in Miami and trying to settle into England was a slowburner, but I sympathised with her a lot and wanted to know more about her and read about her dealing with...

    If I had to rate the story alone, I'd give it 4 stars. The reason my final review is 2 stars is because of the blatant casual racism regarding "Africa", which I'll discuss later in this review. Look, this is a very beautiful book and one I wanted to love because ...

    3.5 Stars - Update: I've decided to round up to 4 because 2 hours after finishing I am still thinking about the last quarter of the book and that earns an extra half star because it has left an impression. CW: (view spoiler)[Dealing with the loss of a loved one, breakups (frien...

    I was lucky enough to get my hands on an early copy of ACGGTTAT, so I got to preview this beautiful story of culture clashes, baking wars, and the many ways both grief and love shape us day to day and year to year. With her sophomore novel, Namey continues in the vein of The Library of...
