"Because the bottom line is this: the book empowers women yes, but ONLY certain types of girls, not all of them. And I am sick and tired of books that associate girls that are self-confident and beautiful with being shallow and superficial and deserving of bad things happening to them. SICK AND TIRED."

Hat tip to Trisha at the YAYAYA's (who is seriously jonesing for the next book in the Chaos Walking series. I feel like a book dealer, since *I* have it, and it's not out in the U.S. yet. [Nyah-nyah.] Since I'm currently on a writing jag, I haven't yet read it - and in solidarity, perhaps I'll wait 'til September. Perhaps).
