The higher you aim, the farther you fall….
It’s Violet’s junior year at the Westfield School. She thought she’d be focusing on getting straight As, editing the lit mag, and making Scott Walsh fall in love with her. Instead, she’s just trying to hold it together in the face of cutthroat academics, Scott Walsh’s new girlfriend, and the sense that things are going irreversibly wrong with her best friend, Katie.
When Katie starts making choices that Violet can’t even begin to fathom, Violet has no idea how to set things right between them. Westfield girls are trained for success—but how can Violet keep her junior year from being one huge epic fail?
The main character, Violet, was awesome. She was sweet, funny, determined, and a character I loved from the start. Violet was just a normal girl experiencing and loving life as she went along.
Boarding school books are so interesting to me because everything about them is so different from public school (like where I attend). Going to an all girls school where everyone knows everything about everybody is such a different experience. Violet and her friends had minimal experience with boys and I loved watching how she acted around them. Romance was not a huge part of the novel and I liked how Mostly Good Girls focused on other aspects of a girls life than having a boyfriend. This novel was rich with friendships, adventures, and laughs. I have to say I loved every minute of it and was reading every chance I got.
I highly recommend picking this up. It’s fabulous debut that will leave you smiling and the main character is one of my favorites.
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
