THE GEOGRAPHY OF GIRLHOOD is a novel-in-verse that stares unflinchingly into the broken and confused life of a high school girl. Penny's mother left her, her father, and her older sister Tara a long time ago. Tara is the cool older sister who hardly gives Penny the time of day, and Penny's two best friends are drifting apart, turning into people she hardly knows.

Thus, Penny must navigate the choppy waters of adolescence by herself. Sometimes she gets things right, but most of the time she'll make mistakes. Either way, however, her story is a real, believable, and heartbreaking one that any teenage girl will like to pick up.

Honestly, it's poetry at its best form. It's a story of a girl in search of herself, like many other stories are, but it's also so much more.

I would recommend reading this novel because it is everything that anyone would look in a good novel. Inspirational and different, I fell in love with it.
