STARS

★★★★★/ 5 (Standard)

★★★★.5 / 5 (Mama Scale)


SUMMARY

A sweet YA novel about sisterhood, loss, and love


REVIEW

A fellow book blogger nailed it when she called this sweet little book a “palate cleanser.” I wish I could adopt the Song Girls as my little sisters and love them forever.


Jenny Han did a fabulous job of portraying the high school experience without downplaying the maturity and wisdom that is possible for a 16-yr-old to learn. She characterized everyone so well and I really appreciate how Laura Jean was able to really own herself — her flaws and awkwardness, and her big big heart.


Overall, a "spot-on" narrative. Really impressed with Han's ability to craft a wholesome book while not losing the grit of the reality about the teenage years

RECOMMENDED?

AB-SO-FREAKING-LUTELY! Especially to anyone in need of a good reset on your reading or just really want a well-written feel good book.
