Publisher Description


"There is more life packed on each page of Ordinary Girls than some lives hold in a lifetime." --Julia Alvarez

Ordinary Girls is a fierce, beautiful, and unflinching memoir from a wildly talented debut author. While growing up in housing projects in Puerto Rico and Miami Beach, Jaquira D az found herself caught between extremes: as her family split apart and her mother battled schizophrenia, she was surrounded by the love of her friends; as she longed for a family and home, she found instead a life upended by violence. From her own struggles with depression and sexual assault to Puerto Rico's history of colonialism, every page of Ordinary Girls vibrates with music and lyricism. D az triumphantly maps a way out of despair toward love and hope to become her version of the girl she always wanted to be.

With a story reminiscent of Tara Westover's Educated, Roxane Gay's Hunger, and Terese Marie Mailhot's Heart Berries, Jaquira D az delivers a memoir that reads as electrically as a novel.
