One of the best YA books published in Rape, Sexual Assault One of my favorite things about this book is the characters. Grace is the new girl who is fat and a Christian. I was also immensely pleased w THIS. I was also immensely pleased with the portrayal of a Christian teen — As I was very into my faith as a teen, I feel Grace is my favorite Christian YA character because her faith plays a constant part in her life but she is also so open-minded and exactly what a Christian should be.
Her character really explores the relationship between latinx family members, the hardship of needing to work as a teen, discrimination as a teen of color, and briefly discusses the struggle of having undocumented family members.
There are also so many side characters that add to the story and show the complexity of women that I could not help but love. A brief overview of important topics discussed that are covered in The Nowhere Girls are: My other issue is one small scene where a classmate is talking to Grace about their trans sibling.
I wish there was a line to make it clearer that Jesse was just ignorant where Grace could have corrected him or any explanation as to why it was included. Overall, The Nowhere Girls is a fabulous YA contemporary for teens wishing to learn about feminism and rape culture.
This is such a wholesome, well-rounded book with expertly-developed characters and important themes discussed. I would highly highly recommend this to any reader; man, woman, non-binary, adult, teen, etc. Please give this immensely important novel the recognition it deserves.
