Booksneeze Book Review

Booksneeze Book Review: Cliques, Hicks and Ugly Sticks:
Confessions of April Grace
By K.D. McCrite

This is a wonderfully reflective book from an eleven year old girl living on a farm in Arkansas in 1986. Her life is quite difficult, being a typical teen who is unsure of her body or how she fits in with others. What Alice Grace has though is spunk and a strong sense of self that gets her through any hurdle that she has with honours. She is an example for all adolescent girls who are meek and have characteristics of being a doormat.

However, what isn’t typical of her upbringing and life is that she lives right across from her grandmother who has two boyfriends and is stuck in a love triangle. How could that happen? And add to that that her other becomes unexpectedly pregnant, and you have quite a mix of drama and insanity. I felt very empathic with April Grace having lived in a dysfunctional family myself. Nothing can quite compare to April’s life though.

I recommend this book for all teen girls who are struggling to find their way. April Grace will show them how to be spunky and how to stand up for who they are and what they want.

Rating: 5 stars
