Join us for a discussion on I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sánchez. The book is a New York Times best-seller and a National Book Award Finalist.

"This gripping debut about a Mexican-American misfit is alive and crackling — a gritty tale wrapped in a page-turner…Part detective story, part coming-of-age tale, Sánchez's novel doesn't shy from heavy subject matter…The story spirals into dark territory when Julia begins to suffer from clinical depression. But she's so blunt, funny and brave that she never becomes an object of our pity. And her moments of joy…are transcendent."
—Catherine Hong, The New York Times Book Review
