Goodreads Book Blurb:
If you’ve seen one rom-com, you’ll be able to predict what happens in A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow within the first three chapters. Maybe five if you’re feeling slow. I considered DNFing at the halfway point but stuck with it. I’m not really sure why…
The problems these teenagers face would’ve felt too mature for people in their mid-twenties. Lila is seventeen, has just broken up with her boyfriend of three years, her friend takes off to Ghana, and Lila is supposed to be taking over her recently deceased grandmother’s bakery. At seventeen. It was difficult to accept as reality, and I spent a lot of time questioning why these characters had to be teenagers.
I think the worst part is that not only is the ending predictable, but the story follows the exact path you expect it to. I can’t remember feeling surprised at any point. Thankfully, the writing flows easily, making this a quick read. The predictability probably helps with this, actually. If you’re looking for easy-to-read chick lit, this certainly fits the bill. It was just a bit meh for me.
