An engaging and entertaining read - not just for the YA audience. Klausner is a great writer who knows how to create characters that seem so real.

I should preface this by saying that I haven't read much YA outside Harry Potter and the Hunger Games. But I'm a fan of Klausner and her podcasts, which led me to this book. That being said, I really enjoyed "Art Girls are Easy." I thought Klausner captured the emotions of a teenager adeptly and she created interesting and honest characters in Indigo and Lucy. The teens in this book never came across as smug or overly mature and wise. By far the best sections were the descriptions of the creative process and the confidence that overtakes Indigo when she is in the midst of working. Confidence in work seems to be a rare theme in the YA world and in the so called "chick-lit" genre, and it was refreshing to see it here.

Format: Paperback
The first line of this book reads: "Indigo Hamlisch stared out of the window of her father's gray Mercedes Coupe and thought about sex."

Personally I find this opening tasteless, like it's attempting to be shocking and edgy but failing miserably, kind of like the wannabe screaming vulgar things at an intimate concert in an attempt to be cool and being met with dead silence by the much classier crowd. However, after suffering through the whole book, I duly acknowledge the utter appropriateness of this opening line: it perfectly represents how unsuccessfully the book attempts to discuss issues of sexuality, body image, friendship, art, inspiration, and privilege. On top of that, ART GIRLS ARE EASY had a jumbled plot and weak character development. All in all, a hot mess.

ART GIRLS ARE EASY wants to be cool. It wants to be the hip new thing that people are talking about, the story that owns criticism and commerciality, the trend that turns people's thinking upside-down. Unfortunately, it had no idea where to begin doing so. What is the focus of this book, anyway? The jacket synopsis claims that it's about Indigo and Lucy's changing best-friendship, but the complexities of this new chapter in their lives hardly appear. Every once in a while, Lucy deigns to come find Indy, they exchange sweet nothings for a few lines, and then Lucy dashes off, leaving Indy behind to feel inferior and insecure. In theory this is what friends drifting apart is like--but the drifting apart needs to be apparent in the harmful way they interact with each other, to show an unhealthy relationship.
