SINGLE CHICAS by Sandra Lopez is an interesting and inspiring collection of stories about modern Latinas and relationships. Now I personally am not a Latina, but I still found the book to be an interesting and inspiring read. Some are more realistic and some are totally outlandish, yet still very entertaining. For instance one woman wakes up in a parallel universe! I mean talk about science fiction! I loved how there were so many different genres within this one book. I think the parallel Universe one was my favorite, but that has more to do with the science fiction nature of the story then the characters themselves.
I was sent this book for free for only my honest and unbiased review. I welcome both positive and negative feedback.
