The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera

Rating: 5-Stars

Summary on Goodreads.

"Mami, for destroying my social life
Papi, for allowing Junior to become a Neanderthal
Junior, for becoming a Neanderthal
This supermarket
Everyone else" [more]

We need more books like this one. Real in so many levels. I loved the setting and the glimpses into the lives of a Latino family. I felt Margot was a real teenager that teens in NYC can relate too. She knew she was wrong but she did it anyways; just like we do.

The book reminded me of Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick your Ass by Meg Medina
