What’s A Girl Gotta Do?

Publisher: Usborne

Review

Lottie has plans: get top-grade A-Levels, get into Cambridge, get elected Prime Minister... But after being hassled by two strangers on the street, she decides that if she wants to change the world, now is the time to start. She hatches a new plan - for the next month, she's going to call out every single piece of sexism that she sees.

By turns funny and heartbreaking, Holly Bourne and her characters shine with full brilliance in this smart and insightful look at contemporary sexism and feminism. Deftly avoiding any note of preachiness, the themes are introduced through storylines packed with drama, friendship, the Bechdel test, and, yes, romance.

These three girls - Lottie and her best friends Evie and Amber - are forces to be reckoned with - but how much is Lottie willing to sacrifice for what she believes is right? A really excellent conclusion to The Spinster Club trilogy.
