Author from Ann Arbor

Author, Rachel DeWoskin, is spot on with her remembrances of high school and delivers a coming-of-age story that is both heartbreaking and full of funny smart voices.
Judy is attending Darcy Academy, located in Ann Arbor, a showcase for talented teens in the arts (sound familiar?), she has a knock 'em dead voice, and she's stands three feet, nine inches tall. Why then has she run away to hide at the seedy Motel Manor?
Judy falls hard for Jeff, a film student at Darcy with dreamy eyes. Her best friends Goth Sarah and Motivated Molly try to keep Judy grounded, but first love is, after all, a force field to be reckoned with.
Author Nicola Keegan says "Witty, intuitive, and moving, Big Girl Small, examines the crucial moment when we either listen to what the world says and stay small, or dare to sing out at the top of our lungs."


I'm getting tired of these books about girls getting attacked and you know about it at the beginning, but they don't tell you all of it until the end. I liked it best when it caught up with current time and stopped flashing back.

A little local color

A pretty good book overall, and set in Ann Arbor, too!
