The Geography of Girlhood is definitely memorable in the way that Smith expresses every single thought, feeling, and emotion that the characters are feeling. Smith makes an author relate to the main character at so many levels, but also introduces the reader to the mind of teen girls that parents or adults may have never experienced before. I thought it was amazing that other reviews suggested that every girl, lady, or woman would relate to it, but I know there are several issues that the girl goes through that I could not even begin to relate to. Although the form of the literature is interesting and makes it an easy read, there were some parts where it became a little complicated to follow along because of the problems each girl is facing. But, nonetheless it is an intense read if you enjoy reading the minds of some dark and mysterious girls growing up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I Also Recommend:
This book is all right if you are into verse novels, but if you are more traditional, it probably won't be your cup of tea. Its not really a novel. Given the poems and short length of the book, it only tells the major events of Penny's life, with little or no transition. The poems are okay, but definitely not the best. Probably won't hold readers attention, as it does not build supsense or anything, and is usually blocky. I wouldn't reccomend buying it, but if you think you might want to read it, check it out at the library.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was........... so/so. There was really no plot, just a bunch of events in a girl's life jumbled together to make a novel. I'm not even sure that the main characters name was ever mentioned.......Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
