Review; Avocado Bliss by Candace Robinson and Gerardo Delgadillo

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the YA novel Avocado Bliss by Candace Robinson and Gerardo Delgadillo through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Dacre Vinson has spent the majority of his life in quite the predicament—even the surf and his books can’t erase his Type 1 diabetes. But when Dacre’s family moves to a new Mexican town, an eccentric girl obsessed with trees offers him a job on the spot, leading to what could be the perfect distraction from his problems.

Salbatora Tames has one true love, her avocado farm. Her family constantly nudges her to be more social, but Sal much prefers the dirt, the sun, and the solitude. Besides, trees listen better than people do.

For Sal and Dacre, their job won’t stay easy breezy for long, not when an avocado delivery to Palenque, Mexico pops up on their radar. Together, they embark on a road trip across the jungle, where they form a tighter bond. However, as obstacles arise, their new-found troubles may lead to more woes than bliss.

My Thoughts on the Book
Avocado Bliss was a fun, warm and fast-paced book with complex and realistic characters. Dacre doesn't like having diabetes, which I fully understand, but I wish his inner monologue wasn't that negative. Nevertheless, the authors managed to write tension in the book and it was overall a nice read.
