Girls Like Us
The feeling I had while reading Girls Like Us was heavy. There was a sense of foreboding hanging over the novel which mimics the way the characters felt when interacting with others. Would they be physically abused again? Would people treat them poorly because of their disabilities? I took on the characters' worries as my own.
Girls Like Us is a quick read, alternating between the perspectives of Biddie and Quincy. At times, it was very painful to read, but it was important. This would be a good choice for a high school book club; there are so many things to discuss and a lot of humanity to learn. I'm glad I read it.
