Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass - Meg Medina

Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass is about Piddy Sanchez, a young girl who recently changed schools. When she is going to school one day a girl comes up to her to tell her Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. She has no clue who Yaqui Delgado is, or what she did to be hated so much.


        This book is now one of my favorites. I liked the plot, the characters, the pace, the title is freaking awesome and the writing style is fantastic. I loved Piddy, and could really connect with her character. I loved Lila and her relationship with Piddy, Lila to be honest was my favorite character in this whole book. Lila is Piddys moms best friend who Piddy has known her whole life. Piddys mom is very strict and set in her ways as a result of something that occurred in her past. All her mom does is work and go home, she never has any fun. That contrasts greatly with the lifestyle Lila has, as she is more about having fun.


          Yaqui herself doesn't appear in the story as much as I thought she would, but when she does appear its with a bang. She is a very tough character, and I kind of wish she had appeared more in the story. I liked how Meg Medina dealt with the situation, and how she wrote it. Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass had everything I could want in a book, and I would recommend it to everyone. I plan on reading more from her in the future.  If you haven't already read Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass you totally should.
