Hello Girls Reviews

  • Maile

    This was such an amazing read! Girl power to the max; it was so funny and empowering!

    Thank you to Katherine Tegen Books and Harper Collins for the free ARC!

    I am deeply fortunate to have gotten to read this as a manuscript.

    HELLO GIRLS is a razor-sharp union of sidesplitting dark comedy, fierce feminism, and poignant friendship, paced like an Alfa-Romeo at full throttle, and written in gleaming, perfect, gutpunch sentences.

    One of the sharpest, funniest, and most perfectly written books I’ve ever read. This story of two best friends on the lam will have you alternating between rolling with laughter and picking your jaw up off the floor in wonder.

    This was sent to me by the publisher, in return for an honest review. Of course, all thoughts are my own.

    3.5 stars.

    I have incredibly mixed feelings about this book.

    This seems to have been written for me. My favorite trope *ever* is vigilante teenage girls. I just find the entire trope so thrilling and impowering. While I loved that aspect of HELLO GIRLS, it's far from a perfect story.

    This seems to have been written for me. My favorite trope *ever* is vigilante teenage girls. I just find the entire trope so thrilling and impowering. While I loved that aspect of HELLO GIRLS, it's far from a perfect story.

    First off, these girls are pretty dumb. I can't go into too much detail since the parts where their lack of thinking would be a spoiler, all I can say is that it was incredibly frustrating to see these girls make these terrible decisions and then act dumbfounded whenever it blew up in their faces, even though there was a much smarter solution, fifty pages beforehand.

    On top of that, GIRLS suffers from way too much inner dialogue. I'm a reader who *loves* dialogue, so this is definitely a personal thing, but I found myself skimming a lot of what was going on in the girls' heads because it was just too drawn on.

    Lastly for the negatives, I had a hard time telling the two girls apart. It's very similar to my experience with Albertalli & Silvera's WHAT IF IT'S US. These two authors' voices are just too similar for me to not constantly second guess who's head I was in, which led to me not connecting as much with the girls as I wanted to.

    I know I seem pretty critical about this book, but it really is something I'll remember for awhile.

    I LOVE how these girls didn't really give a shit about anyone else but them. They're definitely flawed characters and it was nice to see them not turn into these girls with an amazing moral compass.

    It's so incredibly fun and the girls *do* get smart towards the end and I could seriously see this becoming a movie.

    Overall, I recommend this for fans of GONE GIRL and BIG LITTLE LIES who may be looking for a younger version of these stories.

    Two best friends from Michigan go on a road trip of empowerment in their stolen convertible. WAS THIS NOVEL WRITTEN *JUST* FOR ME? BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT WAS.

    I went into this with high hopes.

    But I guess,,,,,,,,,I was expecting something more emotionally devastating?

    I showed up almost entirely for the friendship; sadly, though, I never felt it. I was told “these two are friends” instead of

    Two best friends from Michigan go on a road trip of empowerment in their stolen convertible. WAS THIS NOVEL WRITTEN *JUST* FOR ME? BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT WAS.

    I went into this with high hopes.

    But I guess,,,,,,,,,I was expecting something more emotionally devastating?

    I showed up almost entirely for the friendship; sadly, though, I never felt it. I was told “these two are friends” instead of *FEELIN’* the relationship develop. There were roughly three moments where I was THERE with them????? But I mostly just wanted the book to end.

    Full disclosure, when I read this book I was v jaded about relationships. Like, human bonding of all kind. I was ready to live as a recluse, hate sunshine, and live out my remaining years with nothing but my trusty eyeliner + video games. IT WAS NOT A GOOD PLACE, FRIENDS.

    So, that may have affected my review in a tiny way. But you know what, I still enjoyed this book

    and it was still fun

    Winona is the more timid, sweet, pretty sprinkle. Her dad Stormy is a beloved weatherman & the entire state of Michigan worships him.

    But he’s also abusive, and Winona feels like no one would believe their precious Stormy could hurt his daughter. It was v sad and desperate and I wanted to punch Stormy in the face.

    I LOVE LUCILLE!!!! She’s a badass & is constantly dealing with her drug-dealing big brother. I felt like she’s the stronger component of the Winona/Lucille friendship? She’s witty, tired of being trash, and tired of everyone belittling her. I loved her. I’ve never seen

    but I still feel like Lucille fulfills the *tired of the patriarchy, bad bitch* prophesy.

    This story is about women who are tired of being treated like kids. Who have been abused by men and are just DONE. I loved this theme and supported it 100%.

    I didn’t get enough development; I would have rather the book been about them becoming friends, rather than: “They are friends. Behold! Shiny road trip!”

    + even though I need platonic rep, this book could've been gay & I wouldn't have been disappointed c: c: c:

    Video review -

    This was such a quick read but unfortunately it wasn’t really for me. I was totally engrossed in the story because I had no clue where it was going but then when I got to probably 70% of the way through, I just started losing interest. I was so far in that I sped through the rest of it so I could finish.
