This book is why I love reading middle grade! THE FIRST RULE OF PUNK by Celia C. Pérez has everything I look for in a story. Malú is a heroine with guts and heart and a strong sense of self, all which stands her in good stead as she navigates the ups and downs of being a new girl in school and in her neighborhood. She is also an artist, creating zines to express her feelings and interests. I love her spunk something fierce. I enjoyed the blend of Latino culture, punk music, strong family ties, and the drama that is the world of middle school. As a former seventh grade teacher, the on-going dress code issues cracked me up. So, just how good is this book? Well, folks who know me know I gravitate to urban fantasy and magical realism and male protagonists. But THE FIRST RULE OF PUNK had me at the opening scene and wouldn’t let me go until I finished it. Bravo to Celia C. Pérez on her debut novel. This is an author I’ll be following from now on. Highly recommended.
