Finally, SMART Women's Fiction!

These Girls
by Sarah Pekkanen

Genre: Women's Fiction

Review: This novel is the epitome of SMART women's fiction. Young women dealing with the balance of career, identity, and self-fulfillment. I related to all three main characters in different ways. Cate's "impostor syndrome" and proving herself after her promotion. Renee's struggles with her weight and battle for an editor job. Abby's conflicted feelings about her childhood and love for Annabelle, the baby she nannies. The arc of this story is character development, not a quest for a guy.  Perfect pick for a book club, lots of topics to discuss for young women. Well-written and breezy with surprising depth.

Song to Read by: "Divenire" Live by Ludovico Einaudi
