This book is really cute! What initially attracted me was the cover art—the mix of that bad kitty and that Toulouse-Lautrec Jane Avril foot:
It’s a wacky combination, but it complements the story inside perfectly. Georgia’s a bit crazy, yet she’s a lot of fun. Some of her observations are priceless:
“[Dad’s] growing a mustache—how ridiculous. It looks like some small animal is just having a bit of a sleep on his top lip.”
“[Mark’s] Mick Jagger impersonation did not stop at the lips. He was a lunatic on the dance floor, strutting around with his hands on his hips. I nearly died.”
No matter how brief the journal entries—some even just a sentence if that—they’re so visual. It’s great! I love the final scene—so wonderful and yet so bleak—but it works and makes a fitting end. As a reader, you can’t help but want more. This is truly a great light read.
