The Education of Margot Sánchez ´ 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 stealMargot’s invitation to the ultimate beach party is within reach and she has no intention of letting her family’s drama or Moisés the admittedly good looking but outspoken boy from the neighborhood keep her from her goa Can we stop comparing this book to Pretty in Pink? Okay thanks That's a startI had super high hopes for this book but I just ended up being uncomfortable for like most of it There is so much fat shame and slut shame in this book and most of it are comments made by Margot herself and it goes unchallenged I had hoped the issue on colorism would be explored but all we get is Margot saying that yeah she's lighter skin than the people in her family and her mom was considered ugly for being darker and that's it That's literally it And I don't even want to talk about Margot thinking she's better than pretty much everybody else or hearing all her former friends being judgy afThis book didn't make me happy It made me sad I buddy read it with my best friend and I was so glad for us to read a book about a latina because I wanted my best friend to see herself in a book but it just made us uncomfortable and sad text Û The Education of Margot Sánchez Ò Lilliam Rivera
