SummaryAdd a Summary
I read the book I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter. Julia has a very typical mexican family. A lot of aunts,uncles, cousins and of course you can’t forget people she has never even met that are somehow related to her. Julia and Olga are sisters. They have a typical sister bond, but they use to be so close when they were smaller. Now Olga has always been the favorite of everyone and Julia hasn’t. Julia always thinks about that when they go to family gatherings or important events. A very shocking thing happened to Julia’s family and now everything seems like is going downhill.
