Hi All! It’s Becky. I have had Six Angry Girls by Adrienne Kisner on my TBR shelf since it first came out. I finally got to listen to this audiobook, and I didn’t like it as much as the author’s previous books, but it was still worth reading.
Title: Six Angry Girls
Author: Adrienne Kisner
Note: I listened to the audiobook.
Summary: Raina Petree was having a great senior year until her boyfriend dumps her and the drama club betrays her. Mille Goodwin dreams of law school, and she knows that Mock Trial will help her to prepare. Millie’s law school dreams are possibly dashed when she gets booted from the team. Raina and Millie team up to start their own Mock Trial team. The two will find four other girls to team up with them to beat the school’s boy’s team and try to win the national competition.
Review: I appreciated the idea of this book more than the actual book. Kisner wrote a book that explored the impact of toxic masculinity on teen girls. The book gives many realistic situations where the characters were cut down or insulted by the males in their lives. The main characters grew stronger, bond, and found their future goals by standing up for themselves. I enjoyed the character’s personal growth and the friendship aspects of the book. I did not enjoy the way the book was formatted. It may be because I listened to the audiobook, but I had difficulty following when the narrator changed. Also, I found it difficult to connect to all the characters. Kisner made sure every teen female archetype was represented, and the cast of characters became overwhelming and unbelievable. Six Angry Girls was a pleasant teen book with a message that many teen readers will appreciate.
Final Rating: 3 out of 5
