Editorial Reviews

Online - C. Shore
The story takes place in the late 1980's, the decade in which I was in high school. It also takes place in the part of the country that I am from, therefore, I could relate to the geography.

National Writing Examiner - Ms. D.L. Quesinberry
Her debut young adult title, "Some Girls" is written with the sensibility of an expose'. This title taps into romantic inclinations, minces in ideation of family, grapples the topic of unwed pregnancy and touches on the reprehensible suicide as a solution. The complications of maturation are touched on, through easy to follow narrative, where rapidly changing media aligns to the physiological drives all teenagers deal with.

Author Caroline Scutt's title has universal appeal as these iss
Online - Gay Myers
A terrific first novel for young adults and adults as well. The author has a solid grasp on narrative and dialogue. The conversations among the four girls who are the main characters are realistic, real and in today's vernacular.I'd recommend this book to the 14-and-over age group---and their moms.
I can't wait for more from Caroline Scutt!

Meet the Author

Caroline Scutt began calling herself a "writer" when she filled her first diary with views on the world as it appeared through a young girl's eyes. Diaries made way for journals that led to notebooks filled with stories and essays.

Ms. Scutt began her professional writing career in 1992 as a reporter for "Travel Weekly" newspaper and has since authored articles on an array of topics for various print and online outlets.
"Some Girls," is Caroline Scutt's debut novel. When she isn't writing or helping build a stronger community through her work at United Way of Hunterdon County she can be found sharing her love for stories at her shop, The Book Garden, in Frenchtown, N.J. She also lives in the enchanting Delaware River town with her husband, Jeff, her daughter, Julia, and a house full of furry family members.

    "SOME GIRLS," is a brilliant coming of age story set in original narrative from the 1970's to 1980's. This Young Adult Fiction novel shares the innocence and follies of youth coupled with emerging wisdom and sheer fun. Debut Young Adult Fiction author Caroline Scutt provides a true glimpse into the realities of pubescent Americana just after the sexual revolution. 

    Enjoyable read! ~Dana Queen
