The Education of Margot Sanchez

By Lilliam Rivera

Extended Excerpt No longer available
Pretty in Pink comes to the South Bronx in this bold and romantic coming-of-age novel about dysfunctional families, good and bad choices, and finding the courage to question everything you ever thought you wanted—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.

    Well! This is a quite interesting book to read out. The tag line of this book is quite relevant and true. It’s true that not all the dreams are sweet. There are various people in real life also who see precognitive and paranormal dreams and suffer a lot because of this kind of dream like Janie of this book. It’s really very scary and depressive for those people who see such kind of dreams almost every night. For these people several kinds of counseling sessions and psychic readings can be done to know the reason behind their dreams and why are they seeing such kind of destructive dreams. As, the psychics like voyante sérieuse at http://www.martine-voyance.com/ possess sixth sense abilities, thus they can be able to find out the cause of these dreams and also what are thus indicating to.
