Reviewed for Hot books and Sassy Girls book blog
The main character, Sophia, moves to the Florida Gulf Coast from the Pacific Northwest after a horrible tragedy. One thing I loved about this book was that the author makes the reader feel like we have to get to know Sophia prior to revealing that tragedy. It's almost as if Sophia doesn't want to reveal the horrors even to us, the reader, which makes for a can't-put-down book as we take the journey through the end of the school year with Sophia.
When she meets Jameson, she finds a kindred spirit. He, too, is not your average happy-go-lucky high schooler--he has his issues too. Little by little, his backstory is also revealed through his relationship with "Soph," and through his own POV. (I was pleasantly surprised with the POV change and loved being in Jameson's head!).
I especially enjoyed how Ms. Keane portrayed high school through Sophia's eyes: her troubles (and successes!) in forming friendships, her relationship with her loving (but a bit clueless) aunt, and her assimilation to her new world. Mostly, I loved the amazing development and intensity of the relationship between Jameson and Sophia. Somehow, these two imperfect, struggling souls manage to create a perfect relationship together.
NOWHERE GIRL is a beautiful, slower-paced, intense, character-driven novel that immerses the reader in Sophia and Jameson's world. It lets us get to know these characters on the characters' terms, not the reader's, and by the time the characters open up to each other, the reader is so invested in them that their pain feels like our pain, their love like our love. They become a part of us.
I'm looking forward to reading EVERYWHERE UNRAVELED and SOMEWHERE BOUND next. In fact, I have to-- need to-- continue this journey in the interesting, meaningful world that Ms. Keane created.
And I can’t believe her poor grammar throughout the book (maybe she was just trying to sound like the teenagers today who have no idea how to use pronouns correctly) and I can’t believe an editor didn’t correct these things.
