CURRENT RECOMMENDED BOOK:
Only Mostly Devastated by Sophia Gonzales. This is an amazing book about LGBTQ+ pride and being who you really are. If you like Grease this book is basically the queer version of the movie without the problematic ending.
Rebel Girls by Elizabeth Keenan
When it comes to being social, Athena Graves is far more comfortable creating a mixtape playlist than she is talking to cute boys—or anyone, for that matter. Plus her staunchly feminist views and love of punk rock aren’t exactly mainstream at St. Ann’s, her conservative Catholic high school. Then a rumor starts spreading through the halls…a rumor that her popular, pretty, pro-life sister had an abortion over the summer. A rumor that has the power to not only hurt Helen, but possibly see her expelled. Despite their contrasting views, Athena, Helen and their friends must find a way to convince the student body and the administration that it doesn’t matter what Helen did or didn’t do.
That's a LOOOONG blurb. This book was fine but it lacked the characters and plot that tend to make me fall in love with a book. The characters were quite condescending and weren't easy to like. The romances felt forced and since I didn't grow up in the 90's the trip down memory lane wasn't there, still I reread this book so there must have been something good about it.
LACKING: Likeable characters and entrancing plot.
INCLUDES: Discussion of abortion and pro life characters. Girls bringing down girls and curse words
AGE LEVEL: 14-28
