Join us February 4th at bookworks from 5:00-7:00 pm to discuss our next book. We are reading Estrella’s Quinceañera by Malín Alegría.
Meet Estrella: “For as long as Estrella Alvarez can remember, her mother has been planning to throw her an elaborate quinceañera for her fifteenth birthday — complete with a mariachi band, cheesy decorations, and a hideous dress. Just thinking about her quince makes Estrella cringe. But her mother insists that it’s tradition.
Estrella has other things on her mind, anyway — like dating Speedy. Does it matter that her new friends — and her parents — would never approve of a guy from el barrio? Estrella’s almost fifteen and wants to start making her own decisions. But is she ready to find out who she is — and who she really wants to be?”
We’re really excited to be reading this one–one of our book group members recommended it after she heard about it on NPR! Be sure to get entered in our drawing for one of five free copies of the book!! All you have to do is comment on any blog post before January 17th!
We hope to see you on February 4th–which just happens to be my birthday, a pretty appropriate book, don’t you think? Even if I am just a tad older than 15. . .
