A fantastic follow-up to Merci Suarez Changes Gears. While this could probably be enjoyed as a standalone, if you have access to the first book I’d recommend reading both to truly appreciate the gradual progression of Merci growing up.

Whether Merci’s experiencing anxiety over her family life (her grandpa slipping further into dementia, her aunt falling for someone) or her sweet awkwardness when she watches a movie with Wilson (for readers who aren’t into romance there’s only a small hint of it here) or when she’s scrambling to cover up for an expensive mishap at school, I just loved how honest, relatable, and palpable her emotions feel.

I also love the large role family plays in these books, the first one featured Merci’s bond with her grandfather and in this one it was such a pleasure to get more of a deep dive into her relationship with her aunt who on the surface is different from Merci but they connect on a heartwarming level.

It’s my hope that this isn’t the last of the Merci books, I’d like to keep checking in with her as she gets older. I’m so enjoying the realistic pace
in which Merci, her family and her relationships change and I’m especially eager to see her frenemy situation with Edna continue to evolve. ( )

I missed the first book in this series-but I'll definetely go back and read it now because I fell in love with Merci. She is so strong and creative as she struggles with a first crush, overwhelming family issues, and dealing with a school enemy. She makes some serious mistakes, but owns them and comes out as a better person on the other side. The family dynamics are heartwarming. This book made me laugh and tear up and I think a lot of children will be able to see a part of their life in Merci's. ( )

There's always a worry whether a second book will live up to the first, especially when the first one was so well-received and engaging. Merci Suárez Can't Dance does not disappoint. It's as if you have simply turned the last page of the first book and her story continues (albeit a year later) with the same multidimensional characters and keeping-it-real storyline. What I love the most is that young readers will connect and see themselves in the situations and characters. Merci and the other characters aren't one-dimensional, just like in real life. Merci makes mistakes and compounds them with less than helpful reactions, just like real middle schoolers. As Merci says, "Why are people so complicated? Bad guys should always just be bad guys, and good guys should always be good guys." Meg Medina creates these beautifully complicated, complex characters. She nails the emotional rollercoaster that pre-teens go through, including budding relationships, frenemies, and family. In the end, Merci shines by discovering truths about her whole self and the importance of standing up for herself and friends.

I received an advance reading copy of this book from the Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Merci is back for a new school year in this follow-up to Merci Suarez Changes Gears. Merci is now well aware of how dementia is affecting her grandfather, and the absence of his reassuring nature is difficult for Merci to adjust to. What makes it harder is that her whole family seems to be distracted with other things, leaving Merci feeling like she has nowhere to turn when things start to unravel at school. After unsuccessfully trying to solve her problems on her own, she is reminded by her aunt that family takes care of each other. In that regard, even though Merci wouldn't dance for a school dance, she learns how to help her Aunt start her new dance studio. Perhaps the book should have been called Merci Suarez WON'T Dance, since she overcomes her shyness when the moment really counts.

Merci's tale weaves a lot of themes into a compact story. Need a story about friendship? It's in here. A little romance? It's in here, too. Overcoming first impressions? Yep. Merci has lots of authentic feelings about all these things, and she struggles with thinking that she's so grown up that she should take care of her problems herself. All of these feelings will be very familiar to middle grade readers, and will help them to see that these are common struggles. Merci and her friends are there for each other to the end. ( )

Great book about diverse voices. Merci has grown from the first book. I really enjoyed book one. This sequel was not as enjoyable. ( )
