Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Almarie Guerra tells this story of a summer filled with issues of ethnicity, class, sexism, drugs, and the everyday miseries of adolescence. Margot is trying to put the best spin on her punishment of working at one of her family's supermarkets instead of playing in the Hamptons with her private school friends. Guerra's earnest and vulnerable tone helps smooth over Margot's initial spoiled complaints. Her neutral accent for Margot contrasts with the realistic accents of her Puerto Rican parents, peppered with perfect bursts of Spanish, and her South Bronx co-workers. The false bubbly tone of the dialogue when Margot talks to her school friends shoots straight to the heart of anyone who's ever tried desperately to fit in. Listeners will find plenty of drama, heartache, and redemption in this story. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
