I was a little skeptical about reading this book when we picked it and this is a perfect example of a book I would have never read on my own but because of book club I read it. I am so glad I did. I feel my mind has been opened to a new way of looking at Popularity and I wished I had read this when I was in 8th grade.

The food menu for this book was pretty simple. It was Mexican food. The setting of this book is in Brownsville, Texas right next to the Mexico border.
Sangria would be perfect for this book or any other Mexican refreshment. We also had lemonade.
Think all things you would put on a fajita.
The perfect main dish is FAJITAS! We did a crockpot of chicken and a crockpot of streak. Then we had corn or flour tortillas.
We gave the book club members free reign on what they would like to bring to book club this time. We got a variety of brownies, homemade cheesecake and cookies.
I love Julie's table and chairs. (Okay not the folding chairs.) I just had to throw this in.
Let the Eating Begin!
A HUGE THANK YOU to Julie for hosting this month.
Your new home is beautiful and we are so glad we were able to have book club there.
Here's a Maya'ism for you. She gives these throughout the book.
