I recived an eArc of Tomboy from the publisher’s through netgalley in exchange for an honest review
Some kid’s heads are in the clouds. Harriet Little’s head is in outer space.
In 1950’s America everyone is expected to come out of a cookie cutter mold. But Harriet prefers the people who don’t like her communist sympathizer father and her best friend Jackie, a tomboy who bucks the school dress code of skirts and blouses in favour of T-shirts and blue jeans. Harriet realizes she’s also different when she starts to swoon over Rosemary Clooney instead of Rock Hudson and finds Spuntnick and Sci-fi more fascinating than sock hops.
Before long Harriet is secretly dating the most popular girl in the school. but she learns that real love needs a stronger foundation than frilly dresses and feminie wiles.
This was a quick cute sweet read that I enjoyed. And I loved that this was set in the 1950’s and I didn’t realise this when I requested it. I loved Harriet and I also liked The writing and will be reading more from her maybe at some point. I loved the premise of this book this was intriguing and had me hooked and read this book In a couple of hours because it was so short and quick.
