Things A Bright Girl Can Do

Reading 'Things A Bright Girl Can Do', was slightly out of my comfort zone as I tend to prefer Dystopian or Young Adult genres. However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel and believe it is an essential for young girls in the present because it demonstrates the experience women endured in order to give women the right to vote. One of my favourite moments throughout the book was when Evelyn went on a Hunger Strike in protest of inequality, as it showed that, although she had great belief in the cause, she didn't expect the reality to be quite as punishing as it turned out to be. Also, I enjoyed the pace of this book because, prior to reading it, I thought it was going to be very fast-paced and eventful - focussing mainly on the real events of the time. However, the book concentrated more onto three girls' very different perspectives on Suffragism and how their relationships were affected by this difference of opinion.
