Book Review for: Hyacinth Girls by Lauren Frankel

I was so disappointed with this book. When I first saw that I could review Hyacinth Girls by Lauren Frankel, I was excited to do so. When I received it, I jumped right into the story. However just a few pages into it, the author had said the f- word more than once. Not only that but there were also several inappropriate sexual references. It was so bad that I couldn't finish the first chapter.

From the little I read of the book, Callie is a thirteen year old girl going to the small- town junior high school. One day, a girl throws ink on herself and blames Callie for it, evoking disgust by the small community. Rebecca, Callie's guardian, tries to clear Callie's name. That is about as far as I got.

I'm sure this would have been a very good book, but for me the language killed it.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
