Just Another Girl

Author: Elizabeth Eulberg
Publisher: Scholastic
Release Date: March 28, 2017

Goodreads:

You resent her. You can't stand her. You might even hate her.

But you don't know her at all.


Hope knows there's only one thing coming between her and her longtime crush: his girlfriend, Parker. She has to sit on the sidelines and watch as the perfect girl gets the perfect boy . . . because that's how the universe works, even though it's so completely wrong.

Parker doesn't feel perfect. She knows if everyone knew the truth about her, they'd never be able to get past it. So she keeps quiet. She focuses on making it through the day with her secret safe . . . even as this becomes harder and harder to do. And Hope isn't making it any easier. . . .

In Just Another Girl, Elizabeth Eulberg astutely and affectingly shows us how battle lines get drawn between girls -- and how difficult it then becomes to see or understand the girl standing on the other side of the divide.

You think you have an enemy. But she's just another girl.

Why I'm Excited:
I'll always pick up an Elizabeth Eulberg book. They are always cute and quick, and this one (clocking in under 300 pages) doesn't look like it will be an exception. I like that she is highlighting the trouble between girls. While this sounds a bit young, I've been trying to read more younger YA and MG that I can actually recommend to my honor-level 6th graders who like to read about older kids. I can't wait to dive into this one.

  2. Oh, I don't know about this one. Pitting girls against each other over a boy is so not my idea of a good time. :/

  3. I've not heard of this author before, but I really like the description. I don't feel like I ever set out to undermine other girls, but I struggled to trust most girls and definitely didn't feel like I compared while in high school. Other girls made me feel insecure. I wonder why that seems to be so universal?

    WOW

  4. Huh...I find the idea of seeing this from the two girls' perspectives really intriguing, and kinda awesome. I think it would be good for readers to see both sides of the story. Might just have to add it to my TBR list.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
