The Disturbed Girl's Dictionary; NoNieqa Ramos

The Disturbed Girl's DictionaryThe Disturbed Girl's Dictionary by NoNieqa Ramos
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the structure of the book, but it very quickly felt right, that this was the best way for Macy to tell her story. Macy is a strong character (or maybe I mean "memorable" more than "strong"?) dealing with the problems in her life the best she can - the drugs, her mother, her brother's needs, her BFFs, school, being disregarded and diminished at school, and her father's incarceration. There were times when the situation felt stereotypical, but the voice always felt authentic and as though there were no other way to tell this life.
