Bookshop Girl

Publisher: Hot Key Books

Review

With a mere four weeks to save Greysworth’s only bookshop from demolition, while also trying to master the skill of committing baggy, saggy, dangly bits to paper at a life-drawing class, it’s a wonder Paige isn’t more traumatised!

As she and best friend Holly harness the power of social media, slogan t-shirts and a good old-fashioned sit-in, they seem to be on a roll. But is Blaine Henderson, art school heart-throb and self-promoting anarchist, just a distraction or a potential threat to their plans?

A funny, accessible and absorbing first novel with a couple of feisty heroines, ready to fight for a cause they believe in. It celebrates friendship, loyalty and the joy of reading while sharing cautionary advice about excessive male grooming.
