    TEXT ↠ READER Local Girls Local Girls We were burnouts in a burnout town It took half the length of a Sam Decker movie to get to Orlando from where we lived and even the city was a four year old's dream not a nineteen year old's The high school that we had gone to was not the type whose graduates went on to Ivy Leagues or first or second or even third tier liberal arts colleges There was a community college in town where some of our classmates floundered and delayed having to look for jobs that paid by the hour a

    TEXT ↠ READER Local Girls Local GirlsChosen from Book of the Month clubTo me this was a clear case of story not matching style Zancan's prose is lyrical long and meditative But the story of Maggie Lindsey and Nina isn't like that at all Sure a few small town girls deserve to have their story told but there's such a disconnect between their story and the way they talk and act It just feels like the wrong person is telling itAt ti

    TEXT ↠ READER Local Girls Local GirlsAn interesting premise 3 friends 19 year old girls hanging out in a bar in the outskirts of Orlando meet a celebrity Sam Decker who has come to Orlando and just happened into this dumpy bar Every girl's dream come true Which of these facts do you find too hard to swallow that the owner cares so little about his livelihood that he always serves these girls alcohol knowing full well that they are 2 years under the legal limit; that a movie star comes into a dumpy little hole in the wall by himself; that this bar has no air conditioning remember this is inland not on the water in AUGUST in Florida; that the movie star is wearing a bomber ja

    TEXT ↠ READER Local Girls Local GirlsSo this wasn't in my reading plan at all But since I watched the Amy Winehouse documentary I haven't been able to read or watch or listen to anything demanding or emotionally complex and I really didn't have the energy to read any of any of the books I already had on the go and so I decided to give a YA novel a whirlI'm only really adding this to my shelves at all because I'm convinced it's the result of the author using Lana Del Rey's 'This Is What Makes Us Girls' as a writing promptThis new breed of YA novels that seem to be written with the descriptor 'lyrical' in mind that always have some elegaic or nostalgic uality to them that boosts their appeal to older readers they invariably lure me in with a brilliant opening and then they just drop off The prologue of this book was excellent After that I

    TEXT ↠ READER Local Girls Local GirlsThe girls in this book aside from Nina were often hard for me to distinguish between I think sometimes the author tried too hard to sound cool and it ended up taking away from the individual voices of her characters because they ended up all sounding exactly the same Overall though it was a somewhat enjoyable read and glimpse into young female friendship and what it's like for us girls when we find ourselves at the crossroads of being little girls and diving headfirst into womanhood
