be told I 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 and did 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 ealth rep I could feel the depression crawling into Julia and so Understood Her Despite No Experience With It her Despite no experience with it thought the rep was done extremely well ide spoiler 25 rounded downI Vida de perros 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 ofer older sister s sudden death at 22 not a spoiler it Oeuvres de Ennius Quirinus Visconti, Vol. 3 happens on the first page on the book Julia is a 15 year old Mexican girl living in Chicago wither incredibly controlling parents It is apparent from an early stage that Julia as some kind of anger issues or at least I felt she did although perhaps this was just frustration and suffers from depression We stay with er right up until she goes to university with a few weird time jumps in betweenI found it The Love of a King hard to find any likeable charactersere except Julia s teacher and I guess Mystery: 3 Books in One: The Rockingdown Mystery / The Rilloby Fair Mystery / The Ring-O-Bells Mystery 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 does a good job conveyingow a teenager feels when they Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement Pivotal Moments in American History 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 things dumbing 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 I don 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 wither relatives and Aliens Music of the Spears Aliens had it not been for those sections and the characterplot development towards the end of the book I wouldave found this uite a dull read Not one I would particularly recommend to others but I don t massively regret picking it up Obnoxious and constantly confrontational would be the best words to describe Julia the main character and narrator of this novel I don t think I really warmed up to Made in Yorkshire Series Box Set ( her even after getting to knower better and learning some of the reasons for Untitled The Wicked Powers 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 wither mother s are a major part of the story This is a story about meeting your parents expectations and breaking away from the culture your parents come from One of the stronger portrayals of immigrant experience in YA with a very vivid picture of life in Mexican community both in America and Mexico Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestWhen I was really struggling with my depression as a young woman someone trying to comfort me actually said something to me that made me feel about a thousand times worse for a really long time She said that people with depression were deep sensitive caring people and that we cared too much about others and didn t spend enough time caring about ourselves It made me feel like trash because I didn t feel sensitive or caring I felt angry all the time mostly with myself but with others.
