Don’t Date Rosa Stanos by Nina Moreno

Publication Date: Summer 2019

Goodreads Summary
Rosa is cursed by the sea–at least that’s what they say.

Dating her is bad news, especially if you’re a boy with a boat.

But Rosa feels more caught than cursed. Caught between cultures and choices. Between her abuela, a beloved healer and pillar of their community, and her mother, an artist who crashes in and out of her life like a hurricane. Between Port Coral, the quirky South Florida town they call home, and Cuba, the island her Abuela refuses to talk about.

As her college decision looms, Rosa collides—literally—with Alex Aquino, the mysterious boy with tattoos of the ocean whose family owns the marina. With her heart, her family, and her future on the line, can Rosa break a curse and find her place beyond the horizon?


Just because summer has come to an end does not mean that we can’t get excited about next summer, especially when you have such a great line up of books coming out next year. ‘Don’t Date Rosa Santos’ has so many elements I love in contemporary novels. To start, it sounds like there might just be a setting by the sea, which I love. Second, you have a mysterious fella. But most of all you have a character that has to make a lot of tough choices and face some hard realities in order to find her place in this world.

What’s your most anticipated book?
What was your highlight of the Summer?
