The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a hard one to rate. On one hand I wanted to give it four stars but on the other I was aiming more toward three. I guess that means it’s a 3.5. I liked this book… I enjoyed the characters and situations. The idea of a shrink for teens who is completely unaware of her own children was kind of brilliant and quite realistic. What I didn’t like about the book though was that it seemed like Ginny’s problems all got solved over night. One day she’s miserable and self mutilating and the next she’s all outgoing and making huge changes. It just felt too rushed. I still think it was a great book though despite the poor pacing.
