Into the Wild

Read The Victoria in My Head Online Free - Victoria Cruz inhabits two worlds: In one, she is a rock star, thrashing the stage with her husky voice and purple-streaked hair. In the other, currently serving as her reality, Victoria is a shy teenager with overprotective Cuban parents, who sleepwalks through her life at the prestigious Evanston Academy. Unable to overcome the whole paralyzing-stage-fright thing, Victoria settles for living inside her fantasies, where nothing can go wrong and everything is set to her expertly crafted music playlists.

But after a chance encounter with an unattainably gorgeous boy named Strand, whose band seeks a lead singer, Victoria is tempted to turn her fevered daydreams into reality. To do that, she must confront her insecurities and break away from the treadmill that is her life. Suddenly, Victoria is faced with the choice of staying on the path she’s always known and straying off-course to find love, adventure, and danger.

From debut author Janelle Milanes comes a hilarious and heartfelt tale of the spectacular things that can happen when you go after what you really want.

The Victoria in My Head is a laugh-out-loud debut novel that is the perfect blend of intensity, awareness, and possibilities. This story is told in the first person by Victoria, a Cuban-American who dreams of more than her boring every day existence. When suddenly she becomes, upon sight, positiv...

3.5 stars I love books with music. I find that they’re always fun and guarantee a good time. This one is no different.

3. 5 / 5 Fangs The Victoria in My Head was a relatable, funny, and heartwarming story about discovering yourself. I liked how this book felt authentic and so incredibly real. It took me back to my high school days and how it felt to go through all the big "firsts" in my life. The teenage angst inv...

DNF pg 182 - I really tried with this book. Maybe it's my age showing, but I just found Victoria to be the most annoying character. She was whiny and immature and just not a strong character. Cuban American representation is great, but it didn't really effect her life beyond the quince. Why is he...

Janelle Milanes’s debut The Victoria in My Head is a feel-good contemporary with an easy-to-relate-to protagonist. Victoria Cruz doesn’t exactly live her life on the edge. As a scholarship student and the daughter of parents with Harvard aspirations, Victoria’s life is pretty much laid out for he...

I enjoyed getting to be there as Victoria tried to figure out who she wanted to be. Fun friendships and lots of family time made this more than a romance, AND I got a grand gesture. Pro: Victoria was a great character. I feel like there was some part of her everyone could related to, whether it b...

4 stars Yes, yessss Janelle Milanes yes!! I specifically sought out a YA book that would have a latinx main character.

Okay, here's the thing....I wasn't sure The Victoria in My Head by Janelle Milanes was going to be a book for me. I typically don't read books where the main character is 15 or younger, but at a certain point, I was hooked. Despite Victoria making some bad calls and despite the love interest appe...
