This story takes place in New York and its about this girl named Maria who lives in Queens and travels to the upper east side to a private high school. This book deals with families, race, relationships, sex, and betrayal.

mandi1082 Trying to put into words of how I felt about this story...I didn't like it. I was highly disappointed. I felt like it jumped all over the place. I didnt like any of the characters. They were all messed up in there own little way. I'm glad this book wasn't that long otherwise I might have DNF'd it. 6mo
TheAromaofBooks It's so hard to get into a story where there aren't any characters you like! 6mo
mandi1082 @TheAromaofBooks that is for sure. It reads like a YA novel with adult themes. 6mo

The premise of the novel intrigues me quite so! Having also gone to a private high school on the Upper East Side, and being Latinx myself, I‘ve felt this novel call to me for quite a while. I‘m more than ready to embark on the journey Jimenez has to offer 😃

In this book, the main character is struggling to fit in. She is a scholarship student in an affluent school. She makes some interesting choices which leads to an entertaining read.

I couldn't get into it. I wasn't expecting it to be a YA Novel. After a week I was only on chapter 6 with no motivation to get back to it. I had to force myself to read it.

Ooh! For July we get two #firstreads instead of one! These were my choices for the month - though I‘ll probably keep an eye on a couple of the other options later down the line, quite a few sounded good. Looking forward to these! #kindlefirst #mykindledoesntreallyneedmorebooks #butstill #freebooks

phatsallylee I picked the same ones! 7mo
JazzFeathers Would love to know how Relative Fortunes is. Looks like a 1920s story 😊😍 7mo
