Some Girls Are- CS. ****


Book Name: Some Girls Are.

Author: Summers, Courtney.

Genre: drama- Real life.

Rating: 4/5

Cover rating: 4/5

Review in a nut shell: I wasn’t' sure about this book. When I’d finished my thoughts were "what did I just read?" This isn’t a bad book, not at all, it’s actually really good, and really well written, but it’s just one of those books that makes you think, 'what even is this?' 'Why did they do that?' 'Why did they do this?' Know what I mean?

The characters, these people are generally really strange people. I'm not sure why I couldn't connect to the lead, maybe it’s because of how horrible she really is, I was really glad she got a taste of her own medicine.

The plot is original, it’s actually a really good plot, and I’m not surprised because Summers is a really good author. But the ending was strange, even for Summers, and the occasionally it was a little boring, but i just had to end it because its gripping!

This book is fun to read, a little rushed, perhaps, but it really made me think, even if I did leave me a bit depressed and all that. This book isn’t light or funny, it’s serious and it really brings my bitchy side out. I enjoyed it!
