wisp floating through the air that I can t catch No matter how hard I try no matter how fast I run I just can t reach it Even when I think I grasp it I open my hand and it s empty Oh lord this was good Every Star and recommended to everyone from teens on up Okay there s no way I can leave without addressing one of the biiiiiiiiig complaints about American Dirt was that every trope was troped for tragiporn purposes and no clich was left untouched cough the uincea era cough Wellllllllll lemme just say that EVERYTHANG that happened in AD also happened in this one up to and including the party Oh internet trolls you are TERRIBLE at your job Everyone needs to read this book I ve never felt so connected to a character in my entire life Olga is Alien Mate (Zerconian Warriors, dead Olga

principal about another one of Julia s suspensions Truth be told I Hot African American Erotica didn t expect to like this because I m not Mexican and these type of rebellious teen books Not for me However this book literally pulled me in andid not let go It s a book about coming in terms with who you are what you re made of and breaching the borders It s wonderful This technically isn t a spoiler as it becomes uite obvious earlier on but I will make it anyway view spoiler there was an excellent mental health rep I could feel the Advancing Biological Farming depression crawling into Julia and so understood her Despite no experience with it I thought the rep wasone extremely well hide spoiler 25 rounded Cards Of Alchemy downI have to admit it took uite a while for me to get into this one This isn t a particularly long read but is uite slow paced and YA than I was expecting I ll explain that laterThe story follows Julia s life in the aftermath of her older sister s suddeneath at 22 not a spoiler it happens on the first page on the book Julia is a 15 year old Mexican girl living in Chicago with her incredibly controlling parents It is apparent from an early stage that Julia has some kind of anger issues or at least I felt she id although perhaps this was just frustration and suffers from epression We stay with her right up until she goes to university with a few weird time jumps in betweenI found it hard to find any likeable characters here except Julia s teacher and I guess her relatives in Mexico and maybe Connor I warmed to Julia in the latter stages of the story but it took a long while I think the author Purely Academic does a good job conveying how a teenager feels when they have parents who are very restrictive but it wasn t a whole lot of fun to read aboutMoving on to the writing this would be a 2 star read for sure if I rated purely based on the writing It was written uite simplistically in a way that made me feel like it was aimed at younger readers think like 11 14 years old I m not saying children these ages need thingsumbing The Academic Job Search Handbook down but like I said it felt very much like a YA book even though a lot of the themes suicide attempts sex are probably not suited to children of those agesOverall Ion t think this is a book that will stick with me for long The most enjoyable parts to read were when Julia went to Mexico to stay with her relatives and had it not been for those sections and the characterplot The Hawaiian Islands Their Resources, Agricultural, Commercial and Financial development towards the end of the book I would have found this uite aull read Not one I would particularly recommend to others but I UNCOMMON GROUND: Archaeology and Early African America 1650-1800 don t massively regret picking it up Obnoxious and constantly confrontational would be the best words toescribe Julia the main character and narrator of this novel I Alien n Outlaw Galactic Alliance don t think I really warmed up to her even after getting to know her better and learning some of the reasons for her attitude She is not an easy person to like that s it I ve known people like this in real world But it s not really a criticism of the novel Julia s personality clashes with her mother s are a major part of the story This is a story about meeting your parents expectations and breaking away from

about a thousand times worse for a really long time She said that people with worse for a really long time She said that people with were Gem is Mine but Heart is Your deep sensitive caring people and that we cared too much about others andidn t spend enough time caring about ourselves It made me feel like trash because I Financial Alchemy (Volume 1) didn t feel sensitive or caring I felt angry all the time mostly with myself but with others too I justespised myself slightly than I Narcissistic Abuse did the things and people around me I walked away from that person hating myself a little thatay because it was like Oh great so not only am I epressed selfish and hateful I m not even feeling epressed in the way that I m supposed toIt really messed me upAnd while I m not even feeling Alien Husband Alien Bride depressed in the way that I m supposed toIt really messed me upAnd while s true some people withepression are outwardly caring and compassionate it is also a condition that can make you incredibly self absorbed through no fault of your own I The Violent Stepfather 2 don t think enough people really talk about theifferent ways that epression can manifest Sometimes it s a eep feeling of espair that feels like persistent sadness Sometimes it s emptiness Sometimes it s anger Even though I understand why so many readers felt put off by Julia as a narrator for her snarkiness and her attitude and her explosive narrator for her snarkiness and her attitude and her explosive rages I actually related to her closely than I have related to any other YA character in a long time because the way she behaves is actually a lot like how I id as a teenager I can understand that if someone oesn t like themselves it can be hard to like them as a person Mental health isorders especially epression can be incredibly self centered When you feel bad inside it s really hard to muster the energy to care about others and Julia is so consumed with he.

this is hard on everyoneI want to say that I began reading this within 24 hours of swerving on my bike to avoid the back end of a semi failing to completely jump a curb hurling over the handlebars and face planting on a sidewalk thereafter spitting out blood and half a tooth I m basically fine thanks no broken bones with a temporary crown on that front tooth lost a lot of skin and blood but to read

bookeals with issues of rage epression anxiety suicide mixed raceclass relationships and is often pretty funny when Julia is being sarcastic but she is also caustic and blunt so there s a cringe factor to the humor at times I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter is not a perfect book I want to see of her actual reading and reflection rather than just reporting about books one of the central

fulfill so many expectations with the crushing threat of failure looming over her head just makes her feel like she s about to explodeThis is just such a great book on multiple levels The portrayal ofepression as I said is incredibly relatable I loved that the author had Julia s Alchemy Martial Supreme depression manifest as anger because I think it shows how many teens acting out mighto so because of hidden problems that aren t uite so obvious Meg Medina Nicholas Flamels First Codex did something similar in YAUI DELGADO with the heroine retreating into herself and acting out because of theepression that bullying at school brought on I also really liked how the author wrote about Mexican culture and how there were parts of it Julia really loved and parts of it she tried to Alien distance herself from and this becomes especially clear when Julia s parents send her to Mexico to make her feel better and Julia begins to uestion her own privilege and the way that she has misunderstood some of her parents intentions It reminded me a bit of the PATRON SAINT OF NOTHING where a character goes to the Philippines and it cements his identity by making him aware of his roots while also making him realize how much he had to learn about his own culture from his biased perspective of it living in the United StatesThere are so many great conversations andialogues that are

and how their cultural identity was influenced and shaped by living in the United States as immigrants and how age and generation influenced that shaping it was all so brilliant and the ending was satisfyingI À quoi rêvent les algorithmes did see some people complaining that there is a lot of Spanish in this book and yes there is Most of it you can probably guess from context though I ll admit to being biased I speak Spanish as a second language so I knew most of the words and the ones Iidn t I WAS ABLE TO LOOK UP OR able to look up or I really liked it though I think it adds a lot of BWWM

slipping back and forth epending on which English and Spanish slipping back and forth epending on which or phrase comes first and I really on t think the book would have felt so comfortably natural without all the Spanish words and phrases Some of them are actually uite cheeky or lewdly insulting so if you look up the words you may find yourself uite amusedI loved this book I wish it had come out when I was a teenager as I would have loved it then too5 stars I went into this book with the littlest of expectations not expecting to be as blown away as I was This is a gripping raw story about

applications Told in a witty and raw way this story kept my attention from the moment it began and left me wanting I related to this novel than I thought I would and it made me fall in love with this story even I related to how brash and blunt Julia was and her mixed feelings about her family I related to her mental illnesses which were portrayed so well without sugar coating it The relationships she had with her friends teachers and family were so well written and natural in a way that made the characters come to life for me I also really enjoyed the fact that Julia wanted to be a writer so there are endless literary references scattered in the storyline At the start of this novel Julia is a crude and judgemental girl who is angry with her family and the world she lives in But as she grows and learns from her mistakes she gains confidence and chases her Alien Generals Chosen Brion Brides dreams and learns to speak out about her mental illnesses The growth of Julia s character is the strongest component of this story and I appreciated how much she changed and grew mature This contemporary novel was so well written with the Latinx elements thrown in There was Spanishialogue and it wasn t italicized to the familial elements that pushed the storyline forward It was an enjoyable Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family diverse contemporary novel and I highly
