I'm A.G. Howard, author of the Splintered Series, an Alice in Wonderland retelling, and the upcoming RoseBlood, a modern-day Phantom of the Opera spinoff.


Below you'll meet another YA author who I'm hosting today, and hear all about her debut contemporary novel!

MEET MY GUEST AUTHOR

Today, I'm hosting Lilliam Rivera for the YA Scavenger Hunt! 



Lilliam Rivera is the author of the young adult novel THE EDUCATION OF MARGOT SANCHEZ, forthcoming from Simon & Schuster on February 21, 2017. She is a 2016 Pushcart Prize winner and freelance writer with work in Tin House, Los Angeles Times, Latina, among others. Originally from the Bronx, New York, Lilliam now lives in Los Angeles with her family.

Find out more information by checking out her website or find ordering info for her book here!



ABOUT LILLIAM'S BOOK


Pretty in Pink comes to the South Bronx in this bold and romantic coming-of-age novel about dysfunctional families, good and bad choices, and finding the courage to question everything you ever thought you wanted—from debut author Lilliam Rivera.

Things/People Margot Hates:

  • Mami, for destroying her social life
  • Papi, for allowing Junior to become a Neanderthal
  • Junior, for becoming a Neanderthal
  • The supermarket
  • Everyone else

After “borrowing” her father’s credit card to finance a more stylish wardrobe, Margot Sanchez suddenly finds herself grounded. And by grounded, she means working as an indentured servant in her family’s struggling grocery store to pay off her debts.

With each order of deli meat she slices, Margot can feel her carefully cultivated prep school reputation slipping through her fingers, and she’s willing to do anything to get out of this punishment. Lie, cheat, and maybe even steal…


Margot’s invitation to the ultimate beach party is within reach and she has no intention of letting her family’s drama or Moises—the admittedly good looking but outspoken boy from the neighborhood—keep her from her goal.



You can preorder The Education of Margot Sanchez here.

Here's the author on twitter.
