The joys and frustrations of entering adulthood has never been more confusing or depressing. Still all is not lost for Rianne. Her last year of high school is a time of making choices that have so far been tossed aside.
Gripping from beginning to end, Just a Girl is right on the money. From the blurb, I expected this to be a sex-positive coming-of-age story about a girl who figures out her life and all.
But Just a Girl veers far from that. First, the narration is very detached; it is in the third person but describes all her random musings through the book. Some of them are very philosophical and make for good quotes, yes, but if you were hoping to understand her through it, you are out of luck.
She and Luke, another guy like her, form sort of a relationship and even though it gets serious on his side, she is mostly non-committal about it. But when she meets Sergei, she starts wanting him. And she goes for it, even though she knows it is wrong that she is cheating on Luke.
Like, that is certainly grounds for a stable relationship. Sure, he makes her come multiple times, but is that really what you want to run away from your seemingly boring life for? Look, I am never one for advising what teens should not read. But this book has me considering that.
Also, guy whisks you off because you have given up on making it on your own, and you be happy? That is the sort of message you want to give to young girls? These are the kinds of stories that make the evening news, not the basis for a coming-of-age novel! The pacing is super slow, and if I was this close to not DNFing it. I thought, you know what, maybe the ending will make this directionless plot have some sense, like it would be something that would make me look past the utter boredom I felt despite the good writing.
I did not expect much from this book, but I was still disappointed while reading it until I finished it. I kept on thinking that maybe in the long run it would get better. I know we all love books that feels like a rollercoaster ride; and I think that's the reason why I didn't get to love this as much as I wanted to It's frustrating how it has a potential to become a great book because of the social issues it has, but then Despite the fact that I didn't like the writing style, I still had some things that I loved about it.
The thing I love most about it is its theme. It's clearly stated in the title, "Just a Girl. Like, what? I still can't understand why most people can say bad stuff about girls who are just being If you have some thoughts about this, please comment down below so I could also think about it. A complicated and very nuanced story about Rianne, a girl in her senior year of high school who is trying to figure out what she should do after graduation.
The prose is absolutely masterful in this book and Rianne's sexual curiosity is authentic and incredibly compelling. This story tackles the double-standard girls face in many areas of their lives, particularly if they're curious. Without spelling it out, we understand that Rianne has been given a tiny pinhole of what it means to be a "good girl" and realizing she'll never fit through such rigid strictures, she sees the only option for her is to be "bad.
Highly recommended for creating great dialogue around the limitations and expectations put upon girls. See all reviews from the United States.

New Release Book Review: Just a Girl by Jackie French
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are respectfully cautioned that this website contains images of people who have passed away. I do not remember when I discovered how my mother died, it seems to be something I always knew, a horror I absorbed through my skin. Using her courage to survive and her wits to confound those who despised her, this young woman became one of the greatest monarchs the world has ever seen. Just wow. Buy from Amazon.
An authentic, smart read for older teens. A high school senior whose mother has given her an ultimatum that she must leave home immediately after graduation struggles to decide what she will do next. Bright and tough but at times self-loathing, Rianne stumbles into a serious relationship with her hook-up buddy, Luke, during their last few months of school. However, she also has several electrifying sexual encounters with Sergei, a Russian student studying at a nearby college.
