Publisher's Summary

John Hughes's Pretty in Pink comes to the South Bronx in this bold and "emotional story about class, race, hard work, and finding one's place" (Publishers Weekly) - from debut author Lilliam Rivera.

Things/people Margot hates:

  • Mami, for destroying her social life
  • Papi, for allowing Junior to become a Neanderthal
  • Junior, for becoming a Neanderthal
  • The supermarket
  • Everyone else

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.

So good!

Great read. RIvera is a great story teller. I was hooked from page one. I will definitely be sharing this with my students.
