Citizen Girl

Citizen Girl

Two years ago, this same writing team of Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Klaus offered the world a novel called The Nanny Diaries, which I read, and found delightful, so I thought picking up their second title, Citizen Girl, would be safe enough.

Wow, was I wrong.

It wasn’t just that the title character was known as Girl, and that her boss was the too-cute Guy, it was that none of the characters seemed three-dimensional, with the possible exception of the sixteen-year-old little brother who graced a couple of scenes.

If the cheery red cover sporting a latte cup tempts you to pick up this book, do yourself a favor – put it down, and get a real latte instead.
