(ARC) REVIEW: Jersey Girl by Beth Ann Bauman

Title: Jersey Angel
Author: Beth Ann Bauman
Publisher: Wendy Lamb Books
Date Published: 5/8/12

Publisher Synopsis:
It's the summer before senior year and the alluring Angel is ready to have fun. She's not like her best friend, Inggy, who has a steady boyfriend, good grades, and college plans. Angel isn't sure what she wants to do yet, but she has confidence and experience beyond her years. Still, her summer doesn't start out as planned. Her good friend Joey doesn't want to fool around anymore, he wants to be her boyfriend, while Angel doesn't want to be tied down. As Joey pulls away, and Inggy tours colleges, Angel finds herself  spending more time with Inggy's boyfriend, Cork. With its cast of vivid and memorable characters, this tale from the Jersey shore is sure to make some waves. 

My Rating:

My Review:
Beth Ann Bauman did a great job of writing a Young Adult novel that actually shows what teenagers do and think. So often authors shy away from touchy subjects that are all to real in teenage life these days. 

It was such a great journey with Angel. She is such a unique character in today's young adult fiction. Strong, opinionated, and not afraid of her desires and sexuality. I loved watching her open up and learn who she really was and what she really wanted.
