I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 3 Trigger warnings racism sexism violenceI get what the author wanted to achieve with this but it missed the markTo begin with the summary of this book leads to believe that most of the plot will center on people finding out aboit Lili s dad being deported Except that s an afterthought for the first half and the secret getting out happens at like 70% This book is really just a latina girl trying to fit in at a makorly white school in a rich suburbs There s nothing wrong with that but I wish it had been marketed as suchBut the real reason I didnt love it is the writing This kind of teen thought writing has been gaining in popularity recently and I don t love it I find it hard to immerse myself in a story that looks like a bad fanfiction written by a 15 years old Great if it pleases the teens but it makes it a dozen time difficult for me to enjoy the storyI also have a bone to pick with the double standards here It s great that Lili uestions and voices objections about racism but the author only had her react to sexism when it came from white characters though there are plenty of examples where latinx characters were sexist and in some instances obvious than that done by white characters If you re going to call out harmful behaviour be consistent It won t hurt your main objective to also point out what your own culture does wrongFinally talking about main objective it got blurred in the crowd of side plots We had Lili at school her friendship with Jade her dad being deported her mom s depression her relationship In a well executed novel all those plot lines could have worked well together Here it just felt murky and caused some of the secondary character to fall flat I have ZERO sympathy for the way Jade treated her simply because she has a boyfriend nowI applaud the intention but wished for a polished product
