Hillary Homzie places us squarely inside the mind of girl tweens with her new book, The Hot List. When the protagonist, Sophie, invents a ploy to keep her best friend, Maddie, it turns into a fad, and she finds herself out rather than in. Struggling to recover, she learns about herself and life.
Homzie has captured the voice, thoughts and hyper-sensitivity of pre-teen girls with an authenticity that is just short of amazing. She marries voice, language and humor into a story that moves quickly and is simply fun to read. The characters are a treat. Youll commiserate with Sophie, laugh at Squid, wonder about Blue and learn to live with Nia. Its a delightful book, written for girls and about girls.
