This National Book Award finalist and instant “New York Times” bestseller by Erika L. Sanchez brilliantly tells the story of Julia, “not your perfect Mexican daughter,” who loses her sister in a tragic accident. Julia is left behind to put the shattered pieces of her family back together. Still, no one seems to recognize that Julia is also broken. Instead, her mother seems to channel her grief to point out every possible way Julia has failed.
