    It's sure not sugar and spice. A litany of the challenges a young woman goes through as related to young men, other young women, and all of the horrible things we do to each other. Could be a sleeper for the Printz.

    I picked up _What Girls are Made Of_ because it was highly recommended by YA lit reviewers I trust. While quite well-written - compelling, almost - I don't get it. Maybe, because, as a YA lit professor once said, I am not the intended audience. I found it compelling but depressing. Nina is a high school student so at loose ends I feel sorry for her. Her parents are physically and emotionally distant, her mother revises their personal history on a dime ('You told me love is conditional.' 'I never said any such thing.' - when we know she did.). Her best friend seems shallow, and she is consumed by the attentions of a boy who uses her and casts her aside. Not exactly a rousing ad for 'It Gets Better.'

    Authentic voice of teenage Nina, completely in love with Seth, but with her own admission (never spoken of, but nevertheless true) that he cares for her only with "conditions", her pregnancy and abortion, and their eventual break & the aftermath. As a sort of commentary on female-hood and Nina's dreams/nightmares, the book is broken up with with intercalary chapters inserted - written with touches of magical realism and horror mixed- a teen girl's emerging realization that what girls are supposed to be is not what she always "feels" or "thinks" about herself, and how difficult it is to define oneself apart from boys, etc Very straightforward, explicit sex scenes and narrator's struggles with the effects of the sexual relationship, and detailed scenes of her visits to Planned Parenthood, and the abortion, etc. While the author's style effectively weaves a compelling story of young love, unhappy family, struggling teen girl, with passages of lyrical story, it left me feeling so sad and almost disturbed. Cavalcade of Authors author - NOT a book for younger teens for sure.

    What Girls Are Made Of by Elana Arnold exposes teenage life through Nina’s current experiences as 16 year old interspersed with flashbacks and short, expository pieces that the reader comes to understand later in the book. The author really delves into Nina’s dysfunctional relationship with her mother and how it manifests itself in Nina’s desire for affection and love. I think this book is well written with an interesting twist on the typical YA narrative, and captures a lot the interior life of teenage girls. Readers should be aware of somewhat substantial sexual content that may not be appropriate for a lot 13-16 year olds.
