Anything You Want
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 dad and how to pass calculus. And then there's getting Maggie's parents to like him. Because it's would be so much easier for them to be together if he didn't have to climb the side of the Corrigan's house to see her...
Praise For Anything You Want…
"Anything You Want is a light-hearted look at a hard subject, from the eyes of a boy who means well, but doesn’t always know what’s going on. It’s a look at growing up from the inside of Taco, a happy-go-lucky boy who just wants a family." — Examiner.com
