Synopsis from Goodreads:

Though she’s nicknamed for the magical Harry Potter, six-foot, dreadlocked Harry Kavanaugh doesn’t find any wonder in her daily life at an exclusive girls’ school outside of Washington, DC. In fact she wants nothing more than to chuck her lot and enter the wilds of public school—too bad she didn’t reckon on a trip to the hospital, a runaway, and a renegade or three, which just might show her a different path to everywhere.

My Review:

Feldman brings coming of age to light in a new and snarky manner with this in your face novel. Her writing style really allows you to get down and personal with the main character. You begin to think like she does, which makes this story that much more potent. She tactfully brings a great many issues to light in a way that forces you to think about them and how the characters deal with them. This story catches your attention on so many different levels that it’s hard not to appreciate it.

The characters definitely carry this story forward into another realm of writing. Without fail, Feldman’s characters come to life in a remarkably realistic manner. Feldman develops each with unfailing detail, but does so without detracting from the plot of the story. You can’t help but forming a connection with these unique individuals.

As a whole this is a novel that I would definitely recommend to others. Feldman combines social commentary with real life characters in such a manner that you can’t help but get caught up in it. Throw in a side of teenage snark and you’ve got it made.
