Review: Those Girls by Lauren Saft

Can a book have negative stars? It’s enough that I’m giving it 0 stars, but honestly I’d give it the lowest number of stars one could actually go because…ye gods. I don’t know what to say. I seriously don’t know what to say.

This is one of those books where I feel I find it hard to put my thoughts into words for reaction. Because there aren’t any words. What was the author thinking? How did this get published? I don’t understand really. This was an absolutely horrible book. I don’t even want to waste my time expounding upon what was wrong with the book because I could say…well, everything.

So I’ll leave you guys with this status update I made on Goodreads that sums up my thoughts precisely:

My brain…it hurts. Seriously, I’m not kidding, I just waded through pages of text on multiple infidelities, racism, sexism and misogyny, rape/date-rape, jokes about abortion, endless profanity, slut-shaming, gay slurs, and girls who were just horrible to each other, and it somehow ends up with a happy ending?

Screw this book.

Overall rating: 0 stars.

Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher.
