    1. My review:I decided to review this book purely for personal reasons. I went through divorce for 1,5 years ago and my kid had to go through it on his own way, too. He still does. I was curious and afraid to read The Divorce Girl for exactly the same reasons - and I was right. The Divorce Girl touched me on a personal level, even though the time and the place and the age and path of the kid were different, it still affected me. I enjoyed every minute of reading.The Divorce Girl by Caryn Mirriam-Go [...]

    3. Kansas poet laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, who has also written writing guides, a memoir and nonfiction, turns her hand to the novel with “The Divorce Girl.”The book is written from the perspective of Deborah Shapiro, a high school student in 1970s New Jersey whose parents, as the title reveals, get divorced. Her father takes up with a waitress from a Greek restaurant; her mother withdraws into herself. Deborah finds an outlet in art photography, and earns a little money by helping her fat [...]

    4. A perk of reading books by Kansas authors is that I end up knowing many of the authors whose books I read. I like knowing authors. Sometimes I know them just a little when I start a book, and by the end of the book I feel like I know them much better. Sometimes I know them well enough to see in and around their prose. Sometimes, like with The Divorce Girl, I get so caught up in the story that I forget to do any examining between the lines at all until well after the story has ended.My heart quic [...]

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book from the teenage daughter's perspective. It's about Divorce. Divorce. Is it ever good? Especially for children who get into the tug and pull of the parents. Is that right? Deborah and her brother get put in front of a Judge and is each asked who they want to live with. Each has a different answer. Does this happen in the real world? Do adults really think about the children enough when they divorce? Here is one story that will captivate you and help answer [...]

    6. I loved this book-- mostly because of the voice and the main character development. The dad is such a jerk! Sometimes, he is hard to take, but the reaction of the MC is so realistic--given the situation. Caryn really developed this story and these characters. I could hardly put the book down.
