Very good. Loved all the characters and how it had multiple viewpoints which helped bring the story to life. It has such a powerful message that is still relevant today even though this is set in the 1950/60's about a woman's place in the world.

Good. Full of old Hollywood glamour as it is set against the golden age of Hollywood in the 1940's and 50's. It is about how a young woman navigates growing up in this environment and how her life will become shaped by it.

Very good. Enjoyed reading a different perspective on a much told story. If you are looking for a book on the murders of Jack the Ripper then this book isn't for you as this book looks into the victims and their lives before their infamous deaths. It offers the chance for them to defend themselves against the term used for them as 'Prostitutes' . This books shows how that term was just used as a cover all term for poor women. Highly recommended.

arlenefinnigan Looking forward to reading this. Saw your post and it made me wonder whether that awful Jack The Ripper museum is still open (it is unfortunately) and one of the first thing that comes up when you Google it is a trip advisor post asking "can you take children here?"...... Ugh. 3y

This book annoyed me. I remember @LauraBeth had similar feelings, so I should have listened to her. All the characters are so catty & about nothing interesting. Elinor is obsessed with a boy that is clearly manipulative and controlling, & it's not efficiently addressed anywhere in the novel. She's so defensive about everything, naive, & I just want to yell at her through the pages! I did appreciate the power dynamics at work which is too accurate.

LauraBeth The book with all of the “ha ha ha ha” dialogue! 😂 3y
Kaylamburson Yup, that's the one!!! 🤣😂 @LauraBeth 3y

Trying to read this book to distract myself from the worst pain I've ever experienced. The doctor says it's a ganglion cyst and I need to see a hand specialist, but not sure I'll make it to Monday's appointment. Also I'm so sorry to all the people who have sent me #LitsyLove and #jb mail to whom I haven't responded! I'm hoping I'll be able to use my hand again soon so I can respond to all the lovely notes!!

OriginalCyn620 Hope you feel better soon. 😊 3y

Dragon Sorry to hear about the cyst. Hope the hand specialist sorts it ASAP. Take care of yourself 💐 3y
Betty I‘m SO sorry about your hand pain. None of the Littens want you to feel like you have to send out #Litsylove cards/replies. I‘ve had to pause hand-writing and need to resort to typing. 3y
JamieArc Oh man, I don‘t about that hand/wrist pain! I had a ganglion cyst for a long time when I was younger. Sorry you‘re dealing with that, and I‘m glad you have a good book to keep you company! 3y
Kaylamburson Thank you, @Betty!! I know no one would want me to feel that way but I just love the community so much already and want to participate. Hopefully soon! Or maybe I'll type some in the meantime, too! 3y
Kaylamburson Oh no!! Did yours just go away or did you have to get it removed somehow? I had never heard of it before, and it came on out of nowhere. I just can't believe how painful it is. Probably the worst pain I've ever experienced. But books and Littens always make it better! @JamieArc 3y
UwannaPublishme Oh my! Sending healing hugs so you‘ll feel better soon! 🤗🤗🤗 3y
Jee_HookedOnBookz Omg I'm so so sorry to know that! Hope you feel better soon! Sending lots of love your way! ❤️ 3y
Kaylamburson Thank you so much, @UwannaPublishme and @Jee_HookedOnBookz ! Your well wishes helped because it is immensely better today. I could even hold my book with both hands 🤣😂 3y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Kaylamburson I'm so so glad to know that! Yay to going back to reading with both hands woot woot! 💃🏽 🎉 3y
