Girlish

As soon as I heard the title of this book I just had to read it. Yes, honestly a lesbian family household is outside of my life experience, so I was interested to hear what it is like. Enter in, Girl, who talks about her life from childhood, elementary, junior high, high school, college and beyond living with mother and stepmother. Girl has a variety of siblings, half siblings and a father who lives off in Alaska. Girl is best friends with Brother who is a witness to their lives with two moms and visiting Father in Alaska when it was summertime.

This memoir is about Girl and her struggle to find her place in the world where Father favored Brother and Mother had to cow-tow to Stepmother. Girl is honest, stubborn, free spirited and a survivor. Her writing drops you into her world. I got sucked in from page one.

I received my free digital ARC of Girlish by Lara Lillibridge from NetGalley in exchange for my review. Skyhorse Publishing was kind and sent a courtesy copy. Thank you Angela. If you enjoy LGBTQA memoirs I do recommend this book. Girl lets you into her world and you won’t be the same after.
