Nope. Still a dumb girl.

Where to begin? I've listened to the series so far - and I just keep hoping this girl will wise up. But, nope.
The narrator, while far from the worst ones I've heard, doesn't have a very wide range for the characters. The guys and girls all sound the same. That's disappointing.
But, my main deal killer is how Ever just continues to make the dumbest choices. Repeatedly. As if she figures out which choice is the absolute worst, and then picks that one. I prefer a girl who is a little more intelligent, badass, and independent. A lot less idiotic. So, sadly, I'm giving up on this series.

Weird but in a way that i couldn't stop listening. I think the story was unique enough to keep me interested, even if the narrator did a really crap job with Lou's voice. Regardless, it wasn't the worst story but it wasn't the best...

Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Damour. The book was an easy listen (and I usually can't stand listening to an author narrate their own book) but more than that, this book has contributed to serious reflection of myself, my daughter, and how we are doing as parents. Great examples with real-life, up-to-date scenarios and suggestions on how to tackle some of the most trying aspects of raising girls. My daughter is 12 and, after listening to this book, I now feel a lot more prepared for what to expect from her; what is normal; and what we should be worrying about. I'll be recommending this to everyone I know who can benefit from it. Can't praise it enough.
