I blogged about a book entitled, 32 Candles, by Ernessa T. Carter. Ernessa's book, 32 Candles is the story of a self-proclaimed ugly duckling who finds her voice and finds herself. Check out my article.
We received a great review from Lisa Steckhahn, Reference Librarian for the West Allis Public Library. Here is what Lisa thought of 32 Candles:
"32 Candles is a look at the life of a very unique girl who moves to Los Angeles after enduring abuse from her mom and high school classmates. Davie enjoys Molly Ringwald movies and wants her own “Molly Ringwald Ending”, a sentiment shared by many girls of her generation. When she arrives in LA she transforms herself into another person and becomes a nightclub singer. After establishing a life there, she encounters her high school crush who makes her relive all of the memories she ran away from. It was a very entertaining read and I couldn’t help but root for Davie even though she is flawed. The flaws are what makes her interesting and cause the reader to hope that she finally finds her “Molly Ringwald Ending”.
