Trinkets; Kirsten Smith

Trinkets Trinkets by Kirsten Smith
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Really far too much going on here. The Wallflower Girl, the Popular Girl and the Weirdo are all shoplifters, sentenced to SA. Of course they become friends, of sorts, bonding over the thrill that stealing gives them. Why they steal comes up, and in some ways each of them resolves their issues by the end of the book; not just that problem, but the boyfriend/popularity/family problems, too. It all seemed a little easy, a little simplistic.

Told from the three different points-of-view, it helps that each chapter is labelled as they all sound alike (even Elodie's poetry sounds similar to Moe and Tabitha's voices). Sigh.
