Off-Color by Janet McDonald

Off-Color by Janet McDonald
163 pages

A story about a girl growing up without her father. Her mother loses her job, so they end up moving to the projects, with a surprise twist on the identity of her dad. The only redeeming quality of this book was that it was only a couple of hours down the drain. I felt that the author tried way to hard...she would have the character texting acronyms, and then every time actually say what it meant in the characters thoughts. There was a lot of name dropping of famous celebrities popular at the time of publication, who now, only a few years later are obsolete. My suggestion? Weed this book now due to outdated material. Very juvenile writing...this is a teen book, but should be juvenile fiction.
