Trouble Girls by Julia Lynn Rubin


This book started out pretty fast paced and crazy. I was immediately drawn into the premise of a sapphic book loosely based on a Thelma and Louise retelling. I was riveted once the big event happened and could not stop reading and couldn’t put this book down. But then the book started to get a little drifty in the middle and the ending completely threw me, it didn’t go the way I thought it would.

Trixie and her best friend Lux have planned a weekend trip to the lake to relax and get away for awhile. The road trip starts out fine until they stop at a college bar and get into some serious trouble that they weren’t anticipating. The two girls flee in their car to run from their mistake and decide to never go home, they’re going to get as far away from their problem as possible. Along the way they run into multiple problems but also find the freedom to be themselves and a newfound relationship.

One thing I really didn’t like about this book was its lack of chapters. It made the story almost run together more and there really wasn’t any good breaks throughout. A couple times in the story I was irritated by their decisions but that also might just be me being an adult and not looking at it from a teenager standpoint.

Overall a decent book that I did read pretty quickly, I only wish the book had kept it’s same pace throughout and not gotten so slow and drifty in the middle.

Many thanks to Wednesday Books for the gifted copy for my honest review!
