...I talk about Simmone Howell's Girl Defective, which is AWEEEEEEESOOOOOME:
As Sky puts it in the prologue, Girl Defective is “the story of a wild girl and a ghost girl; a boy who knew nothing and a boy who thought he knew everything. And it’s about life and death and grief and romance. All the good stuff.” That’s a pretty gutsy statement for someone to make about her own story, but Sky (through Howell) delivers the goods. Since finishing it, I’ve been clutching my ARC to my chest, counting the minutes until I can buy a copy of the hardcover.
