Things A Bright Girl Can Do

I really enjoyed reading this book. Both the plot and characters were believable. All of the characters had different beliefs, from peace-loving May and lovely, studious Evelyn to the matter-of-fact, unique Nell. Sally Nicholls did an amazing job with the characters. They all stay in character all the way through, and the way they respond to their problems in different ways. The characters all develop personalities during the story, with interesting plot twists and different opinions on things. The events were gripping, and the fact that the chapters swap between the three characters is very hooking. The plot of this story was well structured, and there were various different major events, which the author seems to be in control of. The plot is intriguing, with many twists and turns. The style of the book is quite easy to read, which makes it very enjoyable. I really didn’t want to put this book down! One thing that I think could have been improved one is the end. It is just a little unsatisfying because although you find out about Evelyn and Teddy’s ending, you don’t really find out about May or Nell, I think that the author should have tied up the loose ends a little more.
Overall, I thought that this book was a really good book, which teaches you a few things about the suffragettes, but also talks about the characters feelings. Overall, I would rate this book nine stars out of ten. I would recommend it to anyone year six or above, it is a real treat.
