August 22, 2017 Book review 11 ★★★★★

I flat-out loved this book!  I savour books about friendship, and I adored how this book focused on the sisterhood theme, with no major romances thrown into steal the limelight.  Friendship deserves the spotlight and I’m so glad that it was centre stage in Girlhood by Cat Clarke.
