Bea is 17. Bea is obedient. Bea needs to get a life – so she got one. Having a life is hard when you’re cardboard boring, not pretty and definately not popular so for Bea, getting a life isn’t going to be easy. Her mother has always expected her to do as she was told and with minimum complaint. As for her father, Bea only knows a few things: he’s French and doesn’t even know she’s alive.
When Ruby Davies, a popular girl steps onto the scene Bea wonders if there is a slight hope in being the spectacular, rebellious person she’d always wanted to be. But when a trip to Spain with the coolest girls in the school goes terribly wrong Bea finds herself stranded in Europe with one destination in her sights – Paris. With the help of American backpackers and one particular love interest can Bea find her father while finding herself along the way?
This novel is a charmingly modern tale that is relatable to insecure teens everywhere. Sara Manning has a clever way of conjuring and then solving problems that affect many young girls in today’s society. The humour and heartbreak come together in one fantastic novel that will teach people how to combat teenage traumas in reality.
Nobody’s Girl is commendable to all girls around the teenage years for a good giggle and a memorable read.
