Expect a bundle of joy—er, trouble—in this hilarious, heartwarming story from the award-winning author of Stupid Fast Geoff Herbach 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...
Two (1.5) Boundless Stars
I’m not really sure how I feel about this book. It was ok, but didn’t grab me. And to be honest I’m not a fan of Taco. He seemed oblivious to the world. I really couldn’t understand him. He drove me bonkers. Taco, is a high schooler and has been love with Maggie for quite some time. Like any normal teenager they decided to do something, without exactly thinking of the consequences. He gets himself into so much trouble. It’s gotta be difficult to live without his mother and his father. Who really isn’t a father at all. And Darius his brother isn’t that great either. It seemed that they all had their own personal issues. Taco is an over thinker and he did it constantly. I don’t know why, but dingus popped up like everywhere in the book. It just came so repetitive. It almost felt like Taco was writing in a Journal at times. Wasn’t sure if that was how it was suppose to be done. Unless, I totally missed something along the way. But I did make through to the end. It had it’s good parts. He was trying to keep the optimism alive. Overall, for me it was just ok.
