Girl Saves Boy

Girl Saves Boy - Steph Bowe I really enjoyed Girl Saves Boy. It was touching and dealt with sensitive matters like suicide, death, cancer, and homosexuality with finesse and ease. The main characters, Sacha and Jewel are complex and have authentic voices. I found myself really caring about them and invested in what they were feeling and doing. The secondary characters like True and Little Al are well developed and bring things to the story rather than just being an accessory. For those who like open ended endings- this will be a great one for you. Plots are tied up, and we know what is most likely to happen, but we aren't given a clear and concise ending. I'd recommend this to fans of Lurlene McDaniel and those looking for an edgy and touching story.
