From School Library Journal Gr 9 UpâMargot is disappointed to be spending her summer working in her family's Bronx-based chain of grocery stores, away from her elite prep school crowd. She is suffering the consequences of using her father's credit cards to finance her wardrobe and would much rather be partying with her friends and her crush in the Hamptons. Margot is rude to her family's employees, rejects her childhood friend, steals beer from her family to impress her new friends, and casually loses her virginity (to a guy who clearly doesn't value her much) after she's been drinking. Her attempts to redeem herself as she finally sees the error of her ways are effective, though, and over the course of the summer, Margot slowly learns the value of real friendship, navigates some family secrets, and begins to see her Puerto Rican heritage in a different light, culminating in an unsurprising but happy conclusion. VERDICT A fairly standard problem novel, but the realistic Latinx characters make this a welcome addition to YA shelves.âKristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH Read more Review "Introducing Lilliam Rivera, one of the most unique and exciting new voices in YA. The Education of Margot Sanchez is funny, poignant, compelling and authentic. She nails the music and conflict of an evolving Bronx, New York. I adore this novel." (Matt de la PeÃ±a, author of LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET)“In the hands of debut novelist Lilliam Rivera, Margot's choices -- which friends? which boy? which future? -- take on a tense urgency. Lively and telling, smart and compelling, Margot Sanchez is a character to take to your heart and Rivera a voice to remember.” (Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club)“With a passionate voice, Lilliam Rivera weaves a layered, complex story of a girl awakening to herself and her family.” (Cecil Castellucci, author of Tin Star)“The Education of Margot Sanchez shatters the myth of assimilation by exposing the loss and ache that comes with it. Instead, Lilliam Rivera tells the reader that there is nothing more powerful and beautiful than staying true to oneself.” (Isabel Quintero, author of Gabi: A Girl in Pieces)“The Education of Margot Sanchez feels as classic as Judy Blume and, at the same time, entirely new. It’s a rich, page-turning tale about a teenage girl stuck between a rock and the growing-up place.” (Veronica Chambers, author of Mama's Girl and The Go-Between)"A debut of great candor, depth, and empathy." (Booklist)"[A]n emotional story about class, race, hard work, and finding one’s place." (Publishers Weekly)"[T]he realistic Latinx characters make this a welcome addition to YA shelves." (School Library Journal)"[A] solid entry novel about family, friendships, and culture. [This] will appeal to teen readers who like coming-of-age tales and stories featuring Latinx culture."

I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
