The Girls from the Revolutionary Cantina: A Novel by M. Padilla

Boasting irreverent, edgy humor and a clear sense of Southern Californian culture, this hilarious, insightful debut novel by award-winning author M. Padilla brilliantly captures the comforts, and dangers, of friendship. Julia Juarez and Ime Benevides, two Mexican-American women from the barrio, have risen from humble beginnings to brisk, career-oriented lives in the San Fernando Valley. Inspired by their good-natured rivalry, Julia and Ime have never let anything come between them. Then enters Julia?s new coworker Ilario, who pulls both women?s heartstrings, disrupting their friendship and bringing Julia?s career to the brink of disaster. Looking for support, Julia turns to her other friends: a partyobsessed dance instructor named Concepcion; Nina, a timid but shrewd seamstress who?s not too taken with her fiance; and Marta, a divorced bar owner preoccupied with the details of a Hollywood murder case. When they involve Julia in a risky scheme, she must choose between her loyalty to her friends and a chance to live the life she?s worked so hard to achieve.
