This book has a very promising first couple of chapters, and the writing's nice, but I was ultimately disappointed. Maybe someone who enjoys more adult books would think differently, but I felt this basically epitomized what I generally find wrong with adult books. It meandered around without any truly strong plot arc. Yes, it's about the narrator, Allie, and her friendship with Kate. It's about her watching Kate's life become worse and worse. It's about her own parents' marriage crumbling, in part due to Kate's awful dad. But the writing, while good, seems so uninterested in its story. The narrative is so removed from everything, which is one of my least favorite things in any book. I'm not sure History Lesson for Girls did anything new with its subject matter.
