REVIEW: Things a Bright Girl Can Do

“It suggested that doing the right thing was a lot more complicated than she’d thought it was”


Love, love, love this book. I’m not a historical fiction fan but the themes of this young adult novel made me forgo my usual thinking and jump right in. Not only was this a brilliant story based on the suffrage movement, but I also appreciated the LGBT characters and the issues of social class in relationships.

It’s kind of surprising that more fiction books aren’t written about the suffrage movement, especially younger fiction. It’s a great way to get kids interested in women’s history. The only thing I would say is that there was a far bigger focus on WWI than I expected before starting the book. That’s not necessarily a negative, it was still a great book, but the suffrage movement was only the main focus of the first half of the book.

Simply, this was a fun and easy read and I’d recommend it highly!
