I received an ARC copy of this book from Harper Teen Canada in exchange for my honest opinion.
This book was incredible! I was hoping to enjoy this book when I requested it but I know that I don’t typically like contemporary. Rules for Being a Girl was a really wonderful surprise. The premise is important and hard hitting; I never stopped rooting for the main character.
Feminism is really important in our society. It can be written really well, or sometimes it isn’t handled well at all. Sometimes it’s preachy, catty, or non-inclusive.
Do remember being a kid? One time someone fed you vegetables, and suddenly it tasted really good, and you realized that it was prepared right? That’s the best way I can explain this book. Feminism, prepared just right.
The writing was easy to read and flowed well. You couldn’t even tell that it was two different authors.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
