Reviews

"In the hands of debut novelist Lilliam Rivera, Margot's choices -- which friends? which boy? which future? -- take on a tense urgency. Lively and telling, smart and compelling, Margot Sanchez is a character to take to your heart and Rivera a voice to remember."--Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
"With a passionate voice, Lilliam Rivera weaves a layered, complex story of a girl awakening to herself and her family."--Cecil Castellucci, author of Tin Star
"The Education of Margot Sanchez shatters the myth of assimilation by exposing the loss and ache that comes with it. Instead, Lilliam Rivera tells the reader that there is nothing more powerful and beautiful than staying true to oneself."--Isabel Quintero, author of Gabi: A Girl in Pieces
"The Education of Margot Sanchez feels as classic as Judy Blume and, at the same time, entirely new. It's a rich, page-turning tale about a teenage girl stuck between a rock and the growing-up place."--Veronica Chambers, author of Mama's Girl and The Go-Between
"Introducing Lilliam Rivera, one of the most unique and exciting new voices in YA. The Education of Margot Sanchez is funny, poignant, compelling and authentic. She nails the music and conflict of an evolving Bronx, New York. I adore this novel."--Matt de la PeΓ±a, author of LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET
"A debut of great candor, depth, and empathy."--Booklist
"[A]n emotional story about class, race, hard work, and finding one's place."--Publishers Weekly
"[T]he realistic Latinx characters make this a welcome addition to YA shelves."--School Library Journal
"[A] solid entry novel about family, friendships, and culture. [This] will appeal to teen readers who like coming-of-age tales and stories featuring Latinx culture."
