Nice rebuttal, Book Club Girl!

Julie E.

Nice job. People who think there aren't strong heroines in YA literature just aren't looking hard enough.


I definitely agree with you on the Leisel Meminger character. She's amazing!


This is a little off topic, but I thought the article about Stuart Little and the beginning of children's libraries in last week's New Yorker (of the infamous Obama cover) was really interesting.

Anne of Green Gables

great article,there are many other heroines,but I just like Anne Shirley best.She gives me another world in this real world.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
