I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter

I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter

From the publisher: "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian meets Jane the Virgin in this poignant but often laugh-out-loud funny contemporary YA about losing a sister and finding yourself amid the pressures, expectations, and stereotypes of growing up in a Mexican-American home." The New York Times calls this "Alive and crackling—a gritty tale wrapped in a page-turner." "Perfect Mexican daughters do not go away to college. And they do not move out of their parents' house after high school graduation. Perfect Mexican daughters never abandon their family. But Julia is not your perfect Mexican daughter. That was Olga's role. Then a tragic accident on the busiest street in Chicago leaves Olga dead and Julia left behind to reassemble the shattered pieces of her family. But it's not long before Julia discovers that Olga might not have been as perfect as everyone thought. Julia is determined to find out. Was Olga really what she seemed? And either way, how can Julia even attempt to live up to a seemingly impossible ideal?"
