*WOULD RATHER FIGHT BUT HOWTHIS IS WHERE HOW TO *rather ight but howThis is where How to Famous departs Claiming His Desert Princess (Hot Arabian Nights from some of the gritty takes on rape culture that I ve read over the years it has a happy ending and Johanna gets some measure of closure or retaliation Despite dealing with a very serious subject it nevertheless remains hopeful and buoyant and defiant in that way And I want to be clear I m not saying that s better than books that adhere to a less optimistic storyline The whole point is that we deserve all sorts of narratives about this topic We need narratives that portray the brutal uncaring realities about rape culture We also deserve narratives about how it is possible toight and to win against men who abuse their privilege Just as How to Build a Girl made me excited Secret Baby, Surprise Parents for teenage girls to read it because it talks so honestly about some of theeelings they might wrestle with I m excited that How to Be Famous exists Mystify (Mystyx, for young women It shows them that you can be strong and still be scared and upset and at a loss at times You canight back and still be terrified and unsure of yourself Media often simplify narratives raising up some people as paragons and casting down others as unworthy and it is never that Simple It Is Always It is always Moran captures that in Johanna s behaviour hereThis book The New Baby feels a lotocused in terms of plot than the Wild Streak first one which is another reason Iind it even better That being said don t mistake this book P.I. Daddys Personal Mission (The Coltons of Montana, for solely a novel about sexual misconduct There s so much happening in here so manyascinating Say Youll Stay And Marry Me feminist subplots Let s just briefly list them Johanna and her dad the way she s acting as this proxy motherigure and at odds with her own mother the hilarious conversations between Johanna and her brother Krissi which always warmed my heart the ruminations once again on the effects of poverty on one s psychology and actions see the scene with Johanna and her brother Lupin Suzanne and the record deal and the way Suzanne has a lot of ideas but is scared to commit them to a recording and of course the uixotic love story between Johanna and John Kite There is just so much happening in this book it actually beggars belief I definitely need to re read it at some point because there are so many rich little nuances I probably missed as I tore through it this onceIf you want something that is honest and uncompromising in its portrayal of women s sexuality yet also un and optimistic and hopefully empowering not really my lane here How
to Be Famous might be that You don t have to read the irst book butBe Famous might be that You don t have to read the The Boleyn King (The Boleyn Trilogy, first book but would highly recommend it This is not just a worthy seuel it s an exuisite pleasure a story I never thought I d get and honestly one that I wasn t really clamouringor yet now I m so happy to have it Again this book isn t really Rascal for me per se I m so excited to share it with myemale Another Day of Life friends to see what they recognize of their own experiences in this to haveascinating conversations with them.
