Title: Just Another Girl
Author: Elizabeth Eulberg
Genre: YA Contemporary
Published: March 28th, 2017
You resent her. You can’t stand her. You might even hate her.
But you don’t know her at all.
Hope knows there’s only one thing coming between her and her longtime crush: his girlfriend, Parker. She has to sit on the sidelines and watch as the perfect girl gets the perfect boy . . . because that’s how the universe works, even though it’s so completely wrong.
Parker doesn’t feel perfect. She knows if everyone knew the truth about her, they’d never be able to get past it. So she keeps quiet. She focuses on making it through the day with her secret safe . . . even as this becomes harder and harder to do. And Hope isn’t making it any easier. . . .
In Just Another Girl, Elizabeth Eulberg astutely and affectingly shows us how battle lines get drawn between girls — and how difficult it then becomes to see or understand the girl standing on the other side of the divide.
You think you have an enemy. But she’s just another girl.
I received an ARC when I attended the 2016 northwest Novel Cuisine Luncheon.
Let me start by saying that I love the cover, and after reading the book I love it even more. Now onto the reason I’m only giving this book 2.5 stars… It is missing a depth that I think this story deserves and it was too fast-paced. The story only skated the surface of the characters feelings and emotions and I wasn’t as invested to it as I could have been if only we dove a little deeper. I will say that I loved seeing life from the point of view of the “girl who has it all” and get insight that only those who really know her get to see.
