The Miracle Girls by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt

miracle-girlsAt 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.

  1. I gave this one to my neice who is in high school, and I’m hoping she likes it. I haven’t heard back from her yet. 🙂

  2. haha! Oh Ana. She is definitely going through some growing pains in the book but I’m glad you liked it the end. It’s funny, several moms have told us she doesn’t have enough attitude to be a real teenager.

    And I’m so glad you like the blog. Yours is GORGEOUS.

  3. Just popped over from the Weekly Geeks and noticed we have this review in common – I’ve linked to you on my site 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to know.
