Things A Bright Girl Can Do

Things a Bright Girl can Do appears at first as your average history fiction novel, you would expect to read on the difficulties of the suffragettes: a group of female right believers. But the story in reality takes a sharp turn for May and an extreme bend for Evelyn. May suddenly takes an interest in another girl and that leads away from the suffragette act which is what causes me to slowly dislike the May & Nell plot. Evelyn suffers what I would describe as a 'mid-life crisis', turning from an abnormal feminist to a crazed lady with starvation and imprisonment as an idea for fun. This really shows an out of character reaction for Evelyn after she joins the Suffragettes, taking part in ridiculous acts that if she took a moment to be the 'bright girl' she'd detest it. Despite this she still gets an Oxford education, she was given no consequence as far as I can see. Thus showing a side I have come to detest. I did not enjoy it because of this.
