Cristal, December 20, 2013 (view all comments by Cristal)
When I first picked up 'Brave New Girl', I thought it would be another dreadfully identical teenage angst book with a girl who hates her parents and hates her friends. But no, 'Brave New Girl' never failed to amaze me. It's truly an astounding book. The author takes you deep inside the mind of a young girl and nearly crushes you with the experience. Following Doreen throughout her life is new and exciting, as she goes through the perils of childhood. It surprized me that Brave New Girl was actually laugh aloud funny, on numerous occasions because it doesn't look like it would be. The book is fun to read, and despite the fact that it isn't extremely long, the story is so captivating it's hard to put it down without wanting more. I've never heard of this author before, but I'm sure we'll hear of her again. I'd recommend it to anyone.
