At first The Miracle Girls by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt was too high school for me. Too much angst. Too much my-parents-are-stupid attitude. Yes, I recognized that the book was YA, but still. This problem was, for me, resolved pretty quickly, though.
Smart (freshman) girl moves to a new town, new school. Girl crushes on boy, moans about her strict parents, slowly makes friends with a couple girls at her new school. One of the few places she’s allowed to go, other than school, is church.
The book is set in Half Moon Bay, California, a town I visited a couple months ago. That connection helped make this a fun read for me.
In the end, I quite liked this book.
I enjoy reading the authors’ blog.
