Book Review: Mostly Good Girls

Title: Mostly Good Girls
Author: Leila Sales
Genre: YA Literary/Commercial Fiction
Rating: A+

140-Character Summary: Straight-laced Violet is growing apart from her straight-laced friend, Katie, as they embark on a hilarious year of hits and misses.

First 140 Characters of the Book: "Poor Mr. Thompson. Mr. Thompson is my precalc teacher, and he is also the only male at the Westfield School. Unless you count Mr. Roebeck..." (p.3).

140-Character Review: Did I mention hilarious? A tale of navigating an elite high school without any elite tendencies and a lot of self doubt. And misconceptions.

140-Character Recommendation/Market Placement/Entry Point: People who enjoy other laugh-worthy books like Lost It and Carter Finally Gets It will enjoy Violet's tale. If you don't laugh, you're dead.
