A Cuban Girls Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey

But I remember we’re both stars Estrellita and Orion a fierce little star and a warrior constellation

A Cuban Girls Guide to Tea and Tomorrow has been not only one of my favorite reads of this year but this book was all about healing for me. In the book our MC has to deal with so much loss but one of those things being the loss of her beloved grandmother, something I had to deal with a while back something that I overcame through this book along side Lila.

Not to mention that as someone who was born in Cuba and raised here in Miami this book warmed my heart in ways that I had no idea I needed. Own voices matter so so much my friends.

I would also like to point out that while reading this book I had SO much café cubano and pastelitos so fair warning you will have cravings haha This is a story about pain, this is a story about love, its about growth and healing and it means so so much to me 💖

I also had the please of making a double sided bookmark for Unplugged book box with the designs you see above!

Thank you to Hear our Voices tours for picking me to be part of the tour for this very special book.

But Lila Reyes from Miami was not without ideas and tricks
