This Is Not a Personal Statement

17 January, 2023

The cover background is red. There is a young brown skinned woman with long straight dark hair carrying a huge stack of books. She also has a courier type bag over her shoulder. She's balancing a takeout cup of boba tea on top of the books and has a cell phone wedged between her shoulder and ear. She is wearing rolled up jeans and a college sweatshirt along with white tennis shoes.This Is Not a Personal Statement by Tracy Badua
Quill Tree Books

An incisive, relatable tale of acceptance, self-discovery, and the infinite possibilities that await when we embrace our imperfections.

As the youngest graduating senior at her hypercompetitive high school, Perla Perez is certain all the late nights, social isolation, and crushing stress will be worth it when she gets into the college of her (and her parents’) dreams: Delmont University.

Then Perla doesn’t get in, and her meticulously planned future shatters. In a panic, she forges her own acceptance letter, and next thing she knows, she’s heading to Delmont for real, acceptance or not. Perla’s plan? Gather on-the-ground intel to beef up her application and reapply spring semester before she’s caught.

But as her guilty conscience grows and campus security looms large, Perla starts to wonder if her plan will really succeed, and if this dream she’s worked for her entire life is something she even wants. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
