The girls in this book, aside from Nina, were often hard for me to distinguish between I think sometimes the author tried too hard to sound cool and it ended up taking away from the individual voices of her characters because they ended up all sounding exactly the same Overall though, it was a somewhat enjoyable read and glimpse into young female friendship and what it s like for us girls when we find ourselves at the crossroads of being little girls and diving headfirst into womanhood.
So this wasn t in my reading plan at all But since I watched the Amy Winehouse documentary, I haven t been able to read or watch or listen to anything demanding or emotionally complex, and I really didn t have the energy to read any of any of the books I already had on the go, and so I decided to give a YA novel a whirl I m only really adding this to my shelves at all because I m convinced it s the result of the author using Lana Del Rey s This Is What Makes Us Girls as a writing prompt This new breed of YA novels, that seem to be written with the descriptor lyrical in mind, that always have some elegaic or nostalgic quality to them that boosts their appeal to older readers they invariably lure me in with a brilliant opening and then they just drop off The prologue of this book was excellent After that I steadily lost interest until I was flipping over ten pages at a time, 4.
5, probably I have a lot of really strong feelings about this book.
This book centers around three girls on their usual hang out during a Saturday night at a bar, except that night happens to outweigh the others in particular, due to the fact that they bumped into their all time favorite celebrity Sam Decker, changing their lives completely I went into this book blind despite knowing that the book follows three girls and their lives during the summer, and it was quite a delight It took a twist on my expectations which is a good thing and I flew through the book in one sitting Zancan s writing was eloquent Flawless with a dash of humor The plot wasn t anything intense at all, but the speech style and kept me at the verge of my seat through it all One thing I personally dislike about the book was how the story was executed from both the past and present I appreciate how the r Chosen from Book of the Month club.
To me, this was a clear case of story not matching style Zancan s prose is lyrical, long, and meditative But the story of Maggie, Lindsey, and Nina isn t like that at all Sure, a few small town girls deserve to have their story told, but there s such a disconnect between their story and the way they talk and act It just feels like the wrong person is telling it.
At times, Zancan makes you breathless with her narrative, which is pretty amazing And the looks back at the teenage antics of the three girls is absolutely the best part of the book But the story continues to bounce around that lost time, the night the girls meet a movie star in a bar, and all sorts of other times in their lives This is This book is a bit of a slow burn We know something bad happens and that something bad HAS happened, but a lot of those things as well as why are kept secret from the reader for most of the book.
The book goes back and forth between the girls night with movie star Sam Decker and to sometime in the past, explaining why there are only three friends now instead of four Note most of the book is in the past The pacing is very deliberate some would stay slow and readers should stay patient Once I got the answers, I actually gasped it felt like I had been punched in the stomach.
This is a book that will stay with me for a while, but I didn t really connect with the characters I felt like if the book had been longer, that would ve helped Even so, the plot carries the day here and patient readers will be rewarded
