Brooklyn Girls - Gemma Burgess

Other reviews at The Book Babe's Reads.


I was unsure about what to expect when I started Brooklyn Girls. I thought that maybe it might be a little like Gossip Girl, or maybe an older version of The Clique. What I didn't expect was what I got. To tell you the truth, this book actually reminded me of a movie... One For the Money, which I adored!


I found Pia to be such a fun, light-hearted character. She was able to stand up for herself, and she had such passion and drive! She was a bit flighty, though. Pia... tended to be a bit on the crazy side, to tell you the truth. She was a partier, and even after she started her business, I felt like she needed to learn some more responsibility. Thankfully, she grew as a character throughout the book, so that didn't turn out to be a problem.


What I enjoyed the most about this book was the overall ambiance of it. I enjoyed the light feel, and how even if things were going wrong, it was a happy type book. Pia's business story was so fun, and even if I wanted to smack her sometimes for jumping in headfirst with no thought to what she was doing.


Mostly, this book was just lightness incarnate, so I don't feel like there's very many things that I can say about this.
