Review for Girls
Girls is a very intriguing book! First off this is Savannah Avery’s first novel, and I have to say it was a great book. This is a short book of only 144 pages, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great read.
There are four main characters in this book and each one is a mystery to me except for Coco because she is the narrator. I found it interesting that when Savannah wrote the book she waited until the end to explain how her and Kitty came to be. Her writing leaves an air of mystery around the entire story…it keeps you wondering. I wondered throughout the entire book..where were the parents, why didn't they care ect. But Miss Avery does a great job of answering all of your questions at the end of the book..so just hold out.
Each girl was missing something in their life and I believe that is why the excepted M so quickly. Although it is scary how easily young girls can be influenced by someone so quickly. I found that M had some good advise about boys…don’t let them take your power.
I did feel that Coco was a bit too dramatic about her and Mark in the beginning but it was a good flaw and made her a better character. This book was unlike anything I have ever read. It didn't have much suspense but I also couldn't stop reading it. The story just flowed for me and never became dull. I think that is because I wanted to see how M came to be who she was….was she a madam, was she abused as a child, was she planted in the school to get recruits? This was a book I will remember for a long time…I rate it 5 stars for originality, and content.
