The Tequila Worm is a heartwarming book that will teach you the true meaning of family. Sofia is a teenage girl that comes from a Mexican-American family, she is very determined , but , she has a caring side to herself. Sofia spends most of her time with her family and learning how to be a comadre . I love that Sofia pushes herself through bulling and gets her grades up. But soon she sees that her grades has brought her to a "fork in the road" where she needs to chose a new life path. Sofia has to choose between sticking by her family or exploring a new mundo at a boarding school of rich kids. I wish i could give a half star , but I can't :( If you read this book i assure you that once you read this book Sofia's story is one you won't forget .
