    The Ultimate Headline

    The book Odd Girls Speak Out by Rachel Simmons is an interesting book. It is a variety of autobiographies filled with drama of many tennage girls. It makes you stop and think about yourself as a person and the people in which you are equainted with. This book definately gets you hooked on is putting yourself in the shoes of the different characters because the experiences in the stories make you feel as if you knew exactly what was going on. If you are the type of person looking for connections top the author's context of living a rough lifesyle and a socially stressed tennage girl, then this is the book for you. This book is overall showing a plethora of veiws from a multitide of different individuals telling their stories while keeping it confedential. It shocks you to see what some of these girls do to one another. For instance, back-stabbing a best friend and rapidly becoming enemies is a big part in this novel. When I put myself in one of the stories I then can understand why some of these girls get picked on but definately not from the girls that look for trouble with others. What is definately annyoing about the book was that absolutely anyone could hae written the book. The author really had no part in this book besides editing the girls' stories and publishinhg the book itself, to me, that was a big turn off of the novel overall. Honestly, this isn't a book I would reccommed, but that is just my opinion. For yours, you'll just have to read the book yourself.
