Summary ´ The Geography of Girlhood ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Kirsten Kiwi Smith ´ 0 Characters Free read The Geography of Girlhood Ke and returns home to heal The geography metaphor and wanderlust theme successfully connect the poems some of which were published previously in literary journals and the emotions of high school and small town life are beautifully expressed nothing ever happens and if it does all the things with wings fly aw. Books that are in verse format are not my thing I admit before reading The Geography of Girlhood by Kirsten Smith I had never read a book written in this format before and it threw me off completely The Geography of Girlhood has a main character by the name of Penny She talks about the different stages of a girl s life She talks about her family particularly her sister who she isn t sure she likes two guys that she dated and the infatuation that is tied to teenage romance An obvious conflict in the novel is how messy and chaotic a teenage girl s mind can be no matter the age All teenagers can relate to that on some level and I remember as a teenager not really feeling comfortable talking about issues either It makes me smile to know at least that hasn t changed much As for the audience I believe this is targeted toward teenage girls between thirteen to sixteen because that is the time where nothing makes much sense It seems like one part of life might be figured out but then something small in this case I d blame Bobby the sister s ex boyfriend can blow it all up and you re left picking up the pieces and trying to make them fit again The teenage years are filled with so much emotion anxiety pain and happiness that it is a wonder that teenagers can string two sentences together and sound intelligent sometimes I m not 100% sure I would say this about Penny by the end of the book but she definitely changes in a way that reminds the readers there might be something better out there if we slow down and take it one step at a time I think we can all agree that the teenage years sometimes feel like a race car speeding down the tracks at 100mph with no sign of slowing down If a reader is looking for a book where the story doesn t have to make sense and doesn t mind the format not being in typical paragraph format then I might recommend this book but on a rating scale I d have to give it 2 out of 5 It wasn t written badly but the voice although accurate and the pacing made me feel like I was pulling teeth to get to the end

Summary ´ The Geography of Girlhood ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Kirsten Kiwi Smith ´ 0 Characters Free read The Geography of Girlhood On her fourth birthday Penny received a globe from her mother If you ever need me just remember I'll always be somewhere on here Two weeks later her mother left never to return In a powerful verse novel Penny charts the landscape of her high school years her older sister's wild ways her best friend's descent. This book had such an ease and flow It was easy to read it in a day due to the free verse of the pagesI actually do not think the title is stupid the line toward the ending that says Isn t it strange the places on the map your heart can take you All relating back to her mother all relating back to her life That the geography of a girl is all over they don t stay in the same wavelength as people they think of love as if it could be than once I truly believe it shouldn t be called love if it doesn t last but Kirsten Smith portrays Penny as a girl of chaos and a girl trying to grow up without a mother without a real path to follow That she can love from afar from close realise it wasn t mean t to be that in life that happens sometimes i just really love how she explains things too like at the end of how she is just floating in the middle of her life Even though it was a short read it was a uick glance at maybe what we can say girlhood really isI m not sure yet since we all travel down different lives and have different impacts but I sure did like this book

Summary ´ The Geography of Girlhood ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Kirsten Kiwi Smith ´ 0 Characters Free read The Geography of Girlhood Into depression her first boyfriend's accidental death her crush on a teacher her father's new marriage her protective relationship of her younger stepbrother and always her longing for her missing mother Overcome by the pain in her life Penny runs away with her sister's ex boyfriend but realizes it's a mista. The Geography of Girlhood is the story of Penny a girl we follow in verse from ages 14 to about 16 Penny has a wild older sister a dysfunctional and missing mother and a father who is trying to cope with it all on his own Penny s father eventually marries a marine biologist and brings a new vegan wife and step brother into his white breadred meat world In the end Penny grows a bit and discovers her step brother isn t so bad her life is her life and she needs to accept itThere are several problems with this novel first it s the voice I really didn t feel Penny spoke for contemporary teens It felt as if Kirsten Smith drew on the angst of her own teen years which I suspect would have been the 80 s same as mine There s just something off or dated about the book Secondly the character s names and the fashion described within the book again seem outdated Penny Denise Bobbywearing polka dots to a dance Finally the characters all had the flavor of go no where trash I simply had no sympathy for them at all I didn t identify with this novel I think you had to have had a stormy girlhood or a dramatic nature to get most of this There are many maps of life to follow This was nothing like mine
