The New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter in a groundbreaking new mini format, perfect for on-the-go reading!Perfect Mexican daughters do not go away to college. 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 her sister Olga’s role. Then a tragic accident leaves Olga dead and Julia reassembling the shattered pieces of her family. And no one seems to acknowledge that Julia is broken, too. Instead, her mother channels her grief into pointing out every possible way Julia has failed. But it’s not long before Julia suspects that Olga might not have been as perfect as everyone thought. With the help of her best friend, Lorena, and her first love (first everything), Connor, Julia is determined to uncover the truth. Was Olga really what she seemed? And how can Julia even attempt to live up to a seemingly impossible ideal?Random Minis are super-light, cellphone-sized, unabridged books made to fit into a pocket or one hand without sacrificing readability. Other titles include All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, Dear Martin by Nic Stone, Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon, Every Day by David Levithan, and We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.
