Sketchy Tacos : A Book Review
One of the things I love about writing online is the ability to meet other authors and bloggers. We are kind of our online society of cheerleaders, encouragers and critics. So when fellow author and blogger, Meg Gonzalez, asked me to read an advanced copy of , Sketchy Tacos and do a book review, both myself & the preteen in my house cheered “YES”!
Sketchy Tacos is a novel set in one of Meg’s favorite places, Mexico. Teen artist, Mila heads to Mexico for the summer and while romance is on the horizon, so is a mess of problems. From sickness to natural disasters and a few boy nightmares to boot, Mila has her summer cut out for her.
While her world seems to be unraveling, the best part of the story is Mila’s determination to maintain true to herself and her art. This book was fun, beautifully descriptive and consumed by both my tween and me.
I love authors who transport you and Meg does this in a way that is engaging. The only downside to this book was all the talk of warmth and sunshine made sitting inside in freezing Oklahoma almost unbearable.
The book is a young adult read for ages 11-18, but I loved reading this book myself. Having an almost teen in the house, I feel as though a lot of what she reads needs to be pre-approved. This book was fantastic for her and she had a blast reading it. Of course, she also asked if we could go on another Mexican cruise after she read it.
Sketchy Tacos goes on sale today, so hop on over to Amazon and snag your copy. It is a steal right now at $3.99 and you are not going to want to miss it.
Thank you Meg for sharing your book with me and my tween! We wish you all best of luck on this book and all the books to come.

Meg D. Gonzalez is a tea-sipping, adventure-seeking, pug-loving kind of girl. She’s crazy for God and wants to share His love with awesome young women around the globe.
She started her first novel at the age of fourteen (it will never see the light of day and that’s best for everyone), but her writing really came alive two years ago after she moved to Mexico. The crazy, wonderful people and culture she encountered inspired the story of Sketchy Tacos.
When she’s not writing, she’s learning to play video games with her husband (she’s horrible), taking hikes in beautiful parks with her pug Pascal, crocheting, and watching way too much TV.
