Description
Save the restaurant. Save the town. Get the girl. Make Abuela proud. Can thirteen-year-old Arturo Zamora do it all or is he in for a BIG, EPIC FAIL? Nothing beats summertime in Miami. For Arturo, this means playing basketball until dark, sipping mango smoothies, and keeping cool under banyan trees. And maybe a few shifts as junior lunchtime dishwasher at Abuela's restaurant. Maybe. But this summer feels different when a cute girl named Carmen moves into Arturo's apartment complex, turning his stomach into a deep fryer. Arturo almost doesn't notice the smarmy land developer who rolls into town and threatens to change it. What the town needs are new businesses, he says--not twenty-year-old restaurants. Arturo refuses to let his family and community go down without a fight. And as he schemes with Carmen to take down the developer, Arturo discovers the power of poetry and protest through untold family stories and the work of Jose? Marti?. Funny and poignant, The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora is the vibrant story of a family, a striking portrait of a town, and one boy's quest to save both. From the Hardcover edition.
