Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera
It will be released on February 21, 2017, by Simon & Schuster.
I seriously need to look for a fun book to break up all of the serious books that I am planning to read this year. This book sounds like it is one of these fun books! I cannot wait to jump into this book.
This one has family involved. I am excited. After reading Simon Vs… it made me want to read more of these type of books. It’s refreshing. And to see this book have a family as well. It is also refreshing to see parents punishing a teenager for something she did wrong.
This cover. Do I need to say more?
Pretty in Pink comes to the South Bronx in this bold and romantic coming-of-age novel about dysfunctional families, good and bad choices, and finding the courage to question everything you ever thought you wanted — from debut author Lilliam Rivera.
THINGS/PEOPLE MARGOT HATES:
Mami, for destroying my social life
Papi, for allowing Junior to become a Neanderthal
Junior, for becoming a Neanderthal
After “borrowing” her father’s credit card to finance a more stylish wardrobe, Margot
Sanchez suddenly finds herself grounded. And by grounded, she means working as an indentured servant in her family’s struggling grocery store to pay off her debts.
With each order of deli meat she slices, Margot can feel her carefully cultivated prep school reputation slipping through her fingers, and she’s willing to do anything to get out of this punishment. Lie, cheat, and maybe even steal…
Margot’s invitation to the ultimate beach party is within reach and she has no intention of letting her family’s drama or Moises — the admittedly good-looking but outspoken boy from the neighborhood — keep her from her goal.
